Oh yes, the selector rod has come rather close to that here as well! I have noticed though it does seem to be very infrequent, although it becomes apparent at the most inopportune times...

For example, Im slowing down to take a junction at the top of a large bank, as I get there Im in 2nd. car coming so I stop and try and pull off in first. Not a chance. Several declutches later and im still at the top of the bank going nowhere...
Took me a good couple of minutes huffing and puffing over it. And sods law says there is always a BMW driver in a rush behind you when it hapens grrr
