Does this issue still exists, or has there been a hardware correction made in newer models of the STR Glowlight?
I bought one about two weeks ago, unfortunately it came with a pin hole tear which leaked a small amount of light, and ended up driving me crazy.

With it ALREADY defective - I went ahead and tested the key thing...

The first time was about six inches and the key landed flat on the screen without issues.

The second time - the pointy end hit first from the same height - a tear a few millimeters long developed!

The outside was intact, and with the light off gave no indication of a tear. Turn the light on - and light shown like crazy!

I exchanged it (without guilt since it came defective), got a new one, and an accidental warranty.

Keeping it in a case + resting it upside down seems like the solution. It's fallen off the bed a few times (in it's M-Edge Latitude Jacket) without issue.
