Has this happened to anyone else?

The battery door must be removed to install the MB-D12 grip, so it's designed to be easily removed. I'm sure it's a part that Nikon plan to keep in stock for the numerous owners who will be losing theirs.

It's a good point that owners should keep an eye on it, and make sure the hinge pins aren't starting to emerge from the clips.

This is simply NOT TRUE! I have the grip, and you do not have the remove the battery door to fit it. You remove a rubber cover from the contacts, but you leave the battery in the camera, and the battery door closed.
