Rough patch on leather Smart Cover?

    I've begun to notice that there is a rough patch on the bottom left corner of my navy Smart Cover, relative to the smooth feel of the rest of the cover. It feels almost excessively dry. I treated it yesterday with some leather oil to try and moisturize it, but it still feels much different than the rest of the leather. I was wondering of anyone else has had this problem, and I think it may have something to do with the leather touching the aluminum back when the cover is flipped open (the spot where the leather patch in question sits is near the warmest part of the iPad). The aluminum back of the iPad tends to get excessively warm, so perhaps that is the problem?
