2.5 NA dipstick

So I was driving my Land Rover 90 and I noticed after parking that there was oil on one of the fenders. When I popped the hood I saw the dipstick had broken off. I've replaced that part before several months ago. Has anyone had a problem with these things? I do have a little rubber clamp over the end of the dipstick tube as I was getting blow by when the dipstick was in it. Thanks!

Look for my thread "Help! Broken dipstick on road" from earlier this week. (How do I post a link to another thread?) Pictures of using rubber hose and clamps to get it back on the road.

My wife bought a replacement dipstick tube from www.rdsparts.com for $14.00. (She just happened to be in the area.)

After owning more than a dozen cars & trucks and driving probably 1.5 million miles I'd never before broken a dipstick tube. But it happens to someone else with the same engine a few days later. Is this a regular problem on the 2.5D?
