i had the same problem. break of a part of a matchstick in the hole so it's not sticking out, and then put the screw back it. my dad put in a longer screw, too, but i don't know if you can find one that fits the strap button.

I think you should get it fixed by someones whos qualified to fix guitars.I dont mean this as a dig at you but if you intend to play live its the safest bet.Its realy quite horrible when your strap breaks mid song.
multicolour random messge!

Take a toothpick that will fit in the hole, but before you put it in put wood glue on it, stick it in the hole, and snap the toothpick so nothing is sticking past the hole. Then tighten the screw in.

you could just drill out the hole of the actual lock so itll take a bigger screw, then use a bigger screw. go slow, but press hard itll thread itself.

I'm not sure I would trust wood filler. I think the tooth pick idea is better, or you could do the best thing, and drill out the hole and glue a dowl rod in it. When it dries then you just put the screw in to the dowl. I did it to mine and haven't had any problems since.
