Issue of touchpad spacers and the number of customers bothered by it

The spacers themselves are perfectly flat, so the problem must be elsewhere.
I’ve got the impression that the problem might be related to the midplate flexing a little bit. If I remove the spacers (mine are both to the right of the touchpad), the area above screw 5 can be depressed half a millimeter or so. And that’s the area where the spacers are elevated. They are interlocked with the midplate already, so fixing/stiffening the midplate better beneath the numpad magnets might solve the problem.
