cracked eyelet on a mavic ma3 rim

a cracked eyelet on a mavic ma3 rear 700c rim.  the spoke and nipple have been pulled through the rim in a series of cracks at the eyelet..  I suspect this is a fatigue failure.  there are also smaller cracks on about 9 or 10 other eyelets, mostly going in the tangential direction of the rim.  apparently I’m not alone.
