Default Seam in back seat bottom cushion.

I have noticed that the back seat bottom cushion seam on my XE has begun to separate. This is right near the top center of the seat. Also, many Astras that are shown for for sale on various internet sites, I see the stitching on the fabric panels has come loose in that area. Of course this is only on the fabric covered seat material on the XE and XR model. Have any of you experienced this? This seems odd because my cars back seat has barely been used and has not had a passenger in it in 5 years.

If anyone is looking for a newer set for a 3 door. I have my original seat covers sitting in box, I took them off almost 6 years ago now when I installed leather.
