Broken K-5 lens release button

Has anyone else had a broken lens release button on the K-5? Mine broke today; I don't know why, it didn't get a knock. Just broke off (and was lost amongst the rocks at Cape Schank). I took the camera to a photographic repair shop that I've used before -- they seem to know what they're doing and are familiar with Pentax. The guy there was surprised. I hope he can find the part.
