I've been having problems with coffee filters collapsing and letting grounds into the coffee pot, plus gunking up the filter basket. The following solution has worked well for me and I haven't had a problem since.
It also works if you moisten the filter so it sticks to the sides of the filter basket.
You can also invest in one of those goldfilters, or permanent filters. Wash out with baking soda once a month or week, depending how much you brew, and you never have to worry about flimsy filters letting grounds go through. Most new makers come with them now.
