Has anyone had problems with Mavic Skewers slipping?

Personally I haven't experienced it with my road bike or MTB.
I have. On a set of Cosmoslampshade

My bike shop swapped it out for an Ultegra and it has worked fine.

They eventually rattle, too. Replaced it with a cheapo set on my heavy wheels and they are quiet.

I only have experience with their composite/stainless steel versions BR 601 and BX 601. The skewers from the other poster that come with the Cosmos might be of a lower grade. With proper installation I can't see how these would slip. The close ratio and grip is incredibly high.
