Subject: [Leica] I Need a Simple Solution

I know for a fact there is an abundance of clever people on this list.  I 
need a simple solution to the following problem:

I carry my Leica around a lot slug over my shoulder without any cases or 
camera bags, (keep the lens cap on now).  What I notice is that a formidable 
amount of lint/dust works its way behind the glass in the eye piece as a 
result I suspect of the constant rubbing against my shirt or jacket.  In NYC 
walking 3 or 4 miles a day isn't unusual (it's why we have the best legs in 
the business, except for Graham that is).  I just received my camera back 
from NJ where they fixed the arresting disc on the speed dial, and I noticed 
they cleaned the dust/dirt from the eyepiece and I want to keep it that way!

Please help me find a way to keep the lint out without changing my clothing 
or habits (good or bad).  My first thought is, how is the lint getting in 
there in the first place? Can the entry rout be plugged?
