Crossswater shower cartridge slowly backing off to hot.

We had this with the first Crosswater wax thermostatic cartridge when I installed the en-suite a few years ago and now the same cartridge in the family bathroom is doing it; it slowly rotates anti-clockwise getting gradually hotter as you shower, ending up about 45 degrees from where you started, even moving after you shut off the water.

We did take this up with Crosswater (now Vado) at the time and they were very helpful. I can't remember what the soluton was and I'm sure they would be equally helpful if I took this up with them but I wondered if anybody else had experienced this? Did it just sort itself out in the end?
