Build issue with FDn lenses

I have an FDn 35mm that has a similar problem and I recall Canon-using friends having this problem years ago. Basically, the bayonet mechanism is pretty fragile and can easily get internally stuck such that it will not mount/unmount. The primary symptom is that the lens release button does not depress easily if at all. I don't know how to fix this problem -- hopefully somebody will post a fix.

BTW, I've never seen a corresponding issue with the FD and FL mounts.
