So I am not alone then...

My H340 has the same problem, and it seems to be not (only) a
mechanical problem. I have a patch that improves the situation,
doing a different kind of button debounce (filtering). Perhaps I
should polish that a bit and commit.

This new filter method would then be used for all platforms with
ADC multi-button inputs, replacing the simple 2-presses-in-a-row
filtering. It would also make it easier to add extra filtering
to suppress the spurious Off events with low battery on recorder
v1.
