06 Ego solenoid issue

I picked up an 06 Ego with some issues, all of which I fixed except for the solenoid acting strangely. The gun will cycle properly for a few shots, but then intermittently the ram and bolt will be driven and held forward, venting air from the barrel.
I have the correct size #11 oring on the rammer, so that's not the problem. It seems to be solenoid related.

The second and possibly related problem is a small leak from the back vent hole in the solenoid. The leak isn't there when the gun is first gassed up, but develops after a couple of shots.
I've torn down the solenoid and checked the spool orings and greased it.

Any ideas on what could be wrong?
