Does everyone have this?

This is on the valve cover on the passenger side. I had an oil leak from this hole and from the gasket. I ordered a brand new one and it has the same hole. Is this just a weak point in the design?

It's not a hole - at least shouldn't be - it's a seam where two pieces on the valve cover are joined. All N54 covers are made that way - but there should be no actual hole. I'm thinking that the oil that you're seeing is actually from the oil fill cap and not from having a "hole" there. It might be really bad luck that you do actually have two covers with a hole there but I doubt it.
