Just to clear that my XO-1.5 had nothing loose or missing after reassembly and although I did not use a torsion screwdriver everything was fastened and still is.
Also I did not have it open on my desk but avoided throwing it around too.
Back to the original question. Should I conclude at this point that there is no information/experience on the effect of repetition on the effectiveness of the soldering reflow process? (ie try and see what happens ;)
