Ryobi plunge lock slippage?

Made some panels the other day and they turned out 'OK' for a first attempt. They're just fish furniture.
Bought some more Oak today to finish up. Set up the bit, cut a test piece of pine, looked OK. Cut my Oak and thought my technique was getting better. Then I noticed that I had lost one of the grooves (Ogee?) in the face of my panel. I thought the bit must have slipped, but it was OK. So I checked the router and it had dropped an 1/8" or so. Raised it up again and recut one of my pieces (which are now ff....) and it dropped again. Raised it again and I discovered I can pull it down with my hand.
I've read about this with the Bosch, but not the Ryobi? Anyone else experienced this problem with a Ryobi? RE175 BTW.

Absolutely, I had a bookcase that I had probably 7 weekends into and on a final profile I was routing in the darn thing creeped on me. But I was able to fix the router with a 5# dead blow hammer, never creeped on me again after that ;-).

ROFL.
I discovered that tightening the depth stop will stop the slippage, which is a pain but works. I think I'll take the springs out of mine, as I never use the plunge feature outside the table and it sits in the table 90% of the time. The springs also cause me to lose about 1/4" of depth under the table.

to make it a non plunger and used it that way until I got a real router.
