The engine air filter seems like a good idea but what about heated material going the other way? There is suction in the air filter. Seems like on idle, the engine could pull more air through the exhaust or is that a one way valve I see? Interesting idea, though.
I am glad I didn't wait that long, though, for a final fix to the same issues. My 272c was purchased 4-08... I do miss a lot about that machine but not the dust.
I do believe it is some type of one-way valve.
