Problems with E-PL1 and Panasonic 20mm

When i put my Panasonic 20mm on my E-PL1, everthing seems fine - until my Pen goes in sleep mode. After waking it up, i can't autofocus the lens anymore, and i can't take a picture (that happens four of five times; if i can't autofucus, i can't in any of the focusing modes; but the menu is still working so it's not 'freezed' ). Restarting the camera helps as does re-mounting the lens (it's enough to push the lens release button). It's a problem i didn't recognise before, it's not the same with my Olympus 14-42mm, at the moment i can't check if it's the same on another mft body; the firmware is updated.

I could live with that problem, but I am afraid of more troubles to come. Does anyone know this problem? Would you guess it's the lens (as i do), the body or a communication problem? And would you sent it in for warranty repair?
