No similar experience, but some advice to keep Jack happy.  Air locks 
are greatly over-rated - you can just remove it and replace it with 
some plastic wrap or foil.  The only thing it does is let you know 
how fast it is fermenting.  This isn't critical.  The foil or plastic 
wrap will keep nasties from creeping back into the ferment.
