Did the bolt break or was it the latch on the inside of the door?

Take it to a local machine shop or fabricator. I think it would'nt be a big deal. A good machinist would probably see a the design flaw and improve on it as well. Plus it would be fast solution.
Good luck!

I agree with everyone; take it to a good machine shop and they will be able to fix it. In most cases after they have fixed it you will not be able to tell it was broken and you will have a latch that will not fail during the night or when your away from the house.
