Steering Rack?

Has anyone ever had a steering rack track rod unscrew itself before? My offside one has done it twice now in the space of 8 months, it hasn't come all of the way out of the rack of course but just enough to give me some serious tracking and steering nightmares. I just wondered if it was a common problem or just another one of my car's little 'foibles'.

when fitting one, it came undone as I was threading it into the track rod end having nearly finished the job, most annoying as I was almost at the end and thought I may have to re-do the whole lot.

Loctite sorted it.
