Bontrager Race Light TANDEM HUBS

Would just like to hear if anybody experienced problems with rear hubs cracking on these wheels?

 

Have Bontrager sort out the problem?

 

Recently had a 2004  model wheel replaced under warranty.

 

Hope it does not happen again?

Not the tandem hub, but Race Lite half-bike hubs yes. The flanges simply crack and a chunk with one spoke attaches breaks out. Interestingly enough, Bontrager tried to address the problem with a generous amount of meat between the spoke hole and flange circumference, but still, it doesn't seem good enough. Radial spoking and hub integrity don't sleep together.
