I only had this problem with the ESU figures - all of the others were
OK. That said, I bought most of mine almost as soon as they were
released so I guess the moulds may have worn slightly (or they could
just have been cast on an off-day).

Did you get your packs from GZG, Brian ? My packs all came with 8
figures per pack (your list above adds up to seven) with an SL, SAW,
GMS/P and _5_ grunts. And the 5 grunts are in two poses, not one. The
scans I took of each pack (which you've put on the ship registry) show
all of these.
