I'm assuming you are using the "safety button" trick for long exposures using no battery.
If so, I have encountered this problem if the cable release is not fully depressing the safety button. Also, I have had weak cable releases that allow some motion of the button once engaged.

I coated the fabric material with some nail polish or glue type material to harden the fabric. I use one large loop with the cable from the camera back to the DUP plate where the release is held firmly with a twist tie. The cable is also tied off along the way to prevent any flop or movement.
I think a short cable in stainless steel mesh would be the answer, but try finding one these days. Hope this helps.
