Hmm....sounds like you have a problem.  The batteries in my M6 seem to last
forever.  I use my camera fairly frequently, and I changed the batteries
not too long ago only because I fugured that after 3 years in the camera,
it was time for a change.  I think in my case, the batteries will wear out
on their owm rather than from drainage from the meter circuitry.
