Default How many people have volume problems because of the scroll wheel?

Though my Sansa e130 is pretty darn old these days, it still works well minus one seriously annoying problem. The volume wheel is incredibly touchy and with a slight bump will blast my ears at full volume. Anyone else have experienced this touchy volume behaviour of the Sansa eXX line?

More Info. >> I have even taken the Sansa apart to see what I could see/fix. Well I discovered the scroll wheel to be a pretty flimsy rotary dial switch in which the scroll wheel itself is held on by a squarish hole which fits over-top of a protruding and matching piece on the switch. This switch doesn't look to be a very common type either so I am not even going to try and find one to swap out...I just have to accept it that it was a design fault.

Oh well, it still plays well and if you use the lock switch once you set a decent volume, you can use it normally.

P.S. I sure like the e130's A/B loop ability - as a guitarist who likes to learn riffs and songs it sure helps to be able to repeat loops quickly. I discovered that feature by accident...very cool.
