I don't see any reason why you can't rotate the base to find firm wood.
If you go the toothpick and glue route note that some toothpicks have a waxy surface and glue won't adhere well. I have also found that white carpenters glue doesn't work well for this purpose as it's not gap filling. Use epoxy as someone mentioned.
You could also epoxy a piece of solid wood to the particle board and screw into that. It would of course raise the table a small amount.
Rotating it to fresh wood seemed to work. I put a little dry lube on the legs to help prevent it again. That thing really gets snug. Not crazy about that dinette design. Anyone ever done a conversion from the legs on the table to something else? Only other design I've seen with that type of dinette is the hinged top and one collapseable leg. I think they wobbled a bit if memory serves.
particle board was designed to save trees I think and use the scrap. this is a good and poor idea but usually works ok.

In my old 1975 Taurus TT the tables had a slotted rail mounted to the wall and a mating piece on the table. The table was solid. The only problem was the table had to be lifted out of the slot so it could be used as the bed platform. I have seen this system occasionally on the WEB. I liked it but it was a PITA when making it into a bed and I could not use it any more due to physical problems.
