Black Tank collapse

I was taking my DX3 in for some warranty work. Suddenly I SMELLED a VERY foul odor. Checked everything, no leak or spills, went to the nearest dump station and dumped, the odor persisteded. I checking all the bays and when I opened the aqua hot bay, it looked like a sewer bomb went off. The shop determined the tank collapsed? My question is how would this happen and has it happened to anyone else?

A picture of where the tank collapsed would be helpful, I noticed our gray & black tanks sag a lot over the aquahot bin also. I Placed a carpeted support in the aquahot bin at the pass frame rail. Not sure if it is necessary, but makes me feel better than seeing it sag.

I have seen situations where tanks were over-filled. The tank swells and pushes the vent/drain UP....in some cases a lot. Then then emptied, the tank can then drop back to its original shape and pull off the vent.
