I heard the same. The caps (the ones made ~1.5 yrs ago) are pure junk. Looks like their engineering department was bored and tried to fix something that wasn't broken. I was forced to buy Husqy power equipment recently b/c I refuse to deal with the horribly designed Stihl caps. I can't believe they let something so flawed into production. And there is something DEFINITELY wrong with the caps...that's why they came out with a replacement.
