Subject: [Leica] Question on lens switching

I have an identical problem with one of my M4s.  I believe light is 
leaking under the shutter.  the curtain has either gotten deformed or 
the tension is lose on that edge.  Another theory is that there is a 
baffle that has slipped out in the channel.

It only happens occasionally to me.  I try to just shoot off a frame 
when I change lenses.  Long term solution, obviously, is to get the 
camera serviced.
