Default RCR-V3's dying while in camera

I picked up two sets of the rechargeable CR-V3's a couple of months back on Buy.com for a great price. Four batteries and two chargers for about $100. When I have used the batteries I have gotten great results. They seem to perform two or three times as good as the PowerEx 2000 mAh batteries I was using in my Olympus C4000Z.

Unfortunately, I've noticed that if these batteries sit inside my camera without being used for 2 or 3 weeks, they slowly discharge until they are dead. I've never had this problem with NiMh batteries and according to the hype, LIon batteries are supposed to be less suseptible to this. Any thoughts on this?
