TX5 battery compartment broken

I took my TX5 out of the Lowepro belt pouch I carry it around on, and the battery compartment flipped open... and wouldn't close!

The little piece of plastic that the battery compartment clips under (when it's closed) and which holds the battery compartment cover in place has snapped off.  I now have a useless camera,and separately, a little piece of plastic about 1mm in cross section and about 7mm long.

Is this something that happens much to TX5s?  I'm trying to think of any bumps or bashes that the camera may have had recently, and can think of none...

Thanks goodness for extended warranties.  I don't take them out on anything except cameras!
