Those are actually two separate issues:

1) the button itself (the device soldered on the PCB) was not able to cope with
the reflow soldering temperature profile used by FIC - despite claims of the
manufacturer.  GTA01Bv4 will use higher quality buttons

2) apparently, for completely unknown reasons, somebody very early in the
project wrote a mechanical spec that said "the second button must be protected
against accidental button presses".  Until I managed to dig this out last week,
nobody seemed to remember this :(

Since this is now known, I'm sure new plastic buttons will be produced shortly
to fix this. Not sure if it will be before GTA01Bv4, though :(
