    None has ever come off on me(although I am trad) I have been to houses where the leading is peeling off tho, so is probably an age thing.

    is it lead or the sticky on ****, as proper lead windows are made up of small pieces of glass, like a church,

    No it didn't come off completely... I just flatted it back down... Looks ok I just have to be careful when I do that window now.
