Thanks for confirming that, clenched! I'm hoping to try them myself tomorrow.

Experiment with releasing button at once, gradually easing off, or just maintaining pressure after the bad spot has passed.
I have seen a trick similar to this mentioned in the KryoFlux forums. In that case, it was achieved by carefully pressing the disk deeper into the drive to achieve a slight adjustment to the alignment of bad tracks with the read heads. That method has one limitation, however: it cannot be used when the disk fits very tightly in the drive. See tect's posts in this thread:

Your trick, on the other hand, works by gently pulling the disk from the drive.
