Sounds like you need to dump the culprit of your problems, the xpan.  Then 
send the defective M9 to me.  ;-)

Seriously, sorry you are having all this bad luck.

I guess to cheer you up, We were out yesterday with the local BMW club, and 
on the way home we stopped to shoot some Egrets... Well the car picked up a 
screw and ended up with a flat tire in the middle of nowhere.  Then I found 
I could not get the spare out of its storage spot under the car.  Luckily a 
young couple came by and took my wife to a auto store and got some canned 
air.  Unfortunately the tire ended up being destroyed on the way to a tire 
shop, not enough air etc.  We did get a used tire so we could get home, 190 
miles, so now I need to buy a correct tire etc.  But we made the trip home 
safely, thanks to that young couple who helped us.

So first my xpan ii suffered a shutter failure - a $850 replacement. Then
Morwyn is diagnosed with cancer and is undergoing radiation treatment. Then
my father passed away. And now the m9 seems to have slightly sticky shutter
button.  Arrrrrggghhhhhhhhh
