Fluke 233 Remote Display Multimeter Battery Issue

One of the coolest DMM on the market:

Fluke 233 – the Remote Display Multimeter

This is a great DMM, but mine has a problem: the battery life!

Leaving the meter in OFF state, after some weeks, all the batteries are dead.  Happened 4 times with different batteries.

It seems that the power-off state consumption is high and approximately the same value for both units.

Some guys from Element 14 are stating that is a flaw with the meters with s/n under 138xxx:
