Plastic vs. Metal: Fight!

There's been lots of talk about the build quality of the plastic mount lenses (DA35 & DA50), so I'm curious: has anyone who's owned one of these lenses had the mount break? That would also include the plastic mount 18-55 and 55-300 lenses. I'm genuinely curious if the difference between a plastic and metal lens is mostly just psychological and caché value, or there is a real-world use issue here.
