comment How To Prevent Holes Around The Inner-tube Valve?
It turns out that the problem was that my bike pump attaches rather strongly to the valve, and when removing it the rubber was being over-stretched, which resulted in the holes.

@DanielRHicks There is only one hole: the one that the valve goes through. On the outside it fits presta perfectly, but not quite perfectly on the inside (2mm gap or so). I am careful that the tube is not twisted on installation. On second thought low tire pressure may have been responsible for at least one of the punctures.

@DanielRHicks I have been using tubes with threaded stems that are/were finger tight. The tubes were not under-inflated: 100-120psi. I use a bike pump (2h that stands up on its own), which has a pressure gauge on it.
