Wacom Intuos3 loose flap

I wasn't sure whether I should post this in the graphic design forum or this one, but since it is hardware...

Has anybody acquired one of these tablets recently and noticed the matte drawing flap is not completely adhered to the plastic, almost like they tried to give it the tracing feature? Unlike the Graphire or Intuos2 that have the transparent flap, Intuos3's is opaque. So it kinda defeats the purpose of having it loose.

A buddy of mine has the same tablet, and his is completely flat and adhered to the surface. Any ideas, anybody?

BTW: I bought it at Circuit City, and have exchanged it once since I thought it was a defect. This is the second tablet with this behavior.
