Just wondering if you know what brand battery is in it?
You cannot grab the button top with pliers?
It expanded because of massive heat, so maybe putting it in the freezer for a few hours might work, hoping that the light doesn't shrink too much or it will jam even harder...
And don't ever use an alkaline battery again in something you care about - they have a well deserved reputation for leaking, especially when they are old or low on charge.
kodaks even worse lol, I only buy the cheapo 9 volt ones for smoke detectors, they dont seem do leak, but try changing over to rechargable NIMH, will save you lots of $ in the long run
Sounds like a good time to use the SAK corks screw...

For what it's worth, lithium primary (non-rechargeable) batteries work great in stuff you want to forget about until you need it. I've used them in my car flashlights for years. They tolerate temperature changes without much loss in performance, and maintain their charge for a long time when not in use. They're pricey, but if you're not using the device often then it doesn't really matter.http://data.energizer.com/pdfs/l92.pdf
