Leica M9 Battery Issue

I'm having bizarre battery issues with my M9. Pop in a fully charged battery. Camera says "battery low". No pattern to the issue. Occurs with my two genuine nine month old batteries. Anyone else having this problem? I wrote to Leica Technical who claimed no knowledge of this issue. I have seen some posts on the Internet complaining about this exact same issue. Very sad to see such poor performance in a $7000 machine. Is this „Deutsche Gruendlichkeit"?
