The black rubber on the tailcap on my new E20 has starting rubbing off on everything, turning it black. It rubs off on my thumb, hand, etc. It almost acts like a very weak magic marker. It hasn't gotten wet, no chemical or solvent contact, nothing I can think of, it just rides in my back pocket all day. Has anyone else had this happen? Any suggestions?

Am I the first one with this phenomenon? Sheesh...I'm showing off this $70 "penlight" in a restaurant tonight at dinner and everyone already thinks I'm weird and crazy because I have all these expensive lights and my 13 year old nephew tells me the rubber switch is making his hands all black. And sure enough, it was. And it still is and won't stop, I'm perplexed...emailed Surefire. I wonder if the grease from his mozzarella sticks interacted with the rubber or something
