LX battery drain?

I've been through 2 sets of batteries on the LX in about a month.

I've looked around and can't seem to find anything that might point to a solution.

Any ideas? Do I need to send it to Eric?

The usual suspects...

1. Not putting release button in Lock and the camera tumbles around in a bag and activates the meter.
2. Over sensitive release button and is able to active even in Lock
3. Finder release button is getting pressed and activating meter.
4. Damaged seal and water has entered the body and causing a short.
5. Dent in body is causing a short.
6. Meter is not able to turn off due to the failure of the time-out circuit

To the OP...Been doing a lot of long exposures by any chance? It takes power to hold the mirror up and the shutter open and the meter running.
