Default HD-DVD cases turning covers pink?

Has anyone else had this problem? I was looking through my collection today and noticed that several of my HD-DVDs that have white covers had taken on a pinkish tint. It seemed that some of the red dye from the cases had transferred to the back of the cover insert and made it look pink on the front. It was more common with the imports, but my copy of Transformers was also suffering the same problem. The other ones I noticed it on were:

Mr. & Mrs. Smith (Polish)
Reservoir Dogs (Dutch)
Underworld: Evolution (Spanish)

Some of my Studio Canal discs also had the red transfer on the back of the artwork, but none of them were white so it didn't show through to the front. Not really a big deal in the end, I just found it very curious and wondered if anyone else had this happen.

Thought i'd resurrect this topic as I just dug out my 'new & sealed, unopened, been in the dark since the day I bought it from new' copy of Reservoir Dogs out in order to list it on eBay - And have noticed that the whole of the cover has gone from white to pink, worse in some areas than others, but it's definately happening. And I can confirm that this has sadly not been subjected to any sunlight at all - it's been in a cupboard since I bought it new about a year ago. No excessive heat or humidity either. Looks like the colour is leeching out of the cases over time.....
