Yes, magnesium is much softer than aluminum, so the problems that people have here are typically related to aluminum cases. Many mag cases will let their studs go without the addition of heat. The aluminum is another story. When combined with the brittle Dilavar studs, getting them out can be a huge pain (see Project 95 in 101 Projects)...
