Potential short-term fix?

If the problem is caused by excessive heat (IR radiation) rather than ordinary light (as seems likely although we can't know for sure), fitting a tailor-made hot mirror into the eye-piece might be a solution. These guys say they can cut one for you but I haven't checked the cost:

Since you are already in touch with Oly about the problem, you might do us all another service by asking them if something like this would reduce/eliminate the problem.

If that's the case, it should also be rather easy for Oly themselves to offer a fix in the form of a special eye-piece that includes a hot mirror.
