This is NOT a "Light leak" Isue.
It Is an electronic Ground Shielding Isue 
Most people would not even notice this UNTILL you run CHDK with Long exposures

I have done alot to find the Exact reason for this isue.
and i have found it.

if you use Black thick paper it will NOT fix the problem

i used tinfoil over the back of the CMOS about the size of the screen then poped the screen back in over it.
its a ground shield isue .

this is what mine WAS doing (Note the purple Haze) on the Left side.





i had the SAME isue to but i dont now:)

After you lift off the screen just lay your tinfoil
Here and fold back the Top right corner for the LCD ribbon cable.
it looks like alot of work   :'( but its not......
It will take you about 10 to 15 minutes to complete this.
and is WELL worth the effort. :D







Let me know how this works for you i have had to do this with a few other cameras to.

I hope this helps you and Others that Just Might be experiencing this behavior in this AND Other cameras.
