Sigma 10-20 F4.5 F5.6 - anyone else had this happen?

Whilst on a short holiday elsewhere in the UK, I was using the lens quite a lot - no problems!

Then, whilst repacking it into the backpack in the hotel (a country pub actually, and a good one!), there was a metallic "clink" as something hit the floor - and then I found that the whole rear centre section of the back (i.e. inside the mount) had just fallen out. Seems it was only held in place by some small blobs of adhesive or medium strength threadlock compound!!!

"Popped" it back in place and everything seems to be OK, but I think I will secure it with some threadlocking compound before I use the lens again!!

Anyone else had something like this happen?

I've had it from new - about 5-6 years - and this is the first problem I've had with it (although it has taken quite a few hard knocks due to failed straps, dropped bags and falls, so maybe something was eventually bound to happen!)
