This occurs on PCs as well as the Mac Pro. What happens is that machines which have both front panel and rear panel ports get the majority, if not all the usage, from the front panel port. So guess which wear out the fastest? You guessed it...

Not much you can do except maybe swap out the connector itself. I'm not familiar with how the port connectors are setup on the Mac Pro but you should be able to figure it out after removing the covers.
