Ok, why are you trying to compare cheap longer lenses to much wider pancakes????

That pretty much ruins the lens for thin DOF or low light use, and I might as well use the Panasonic/Leica 45mm f/2.8 (which I do, in fact).

The Panasonic/Leica 45mm f/2.8 is not a pancake lens.

That was the point: the m4/3 pancake lenses in many cases are more prone to busy non-circular out of focus highlights, and uneven bokeh. The examples of this with the 20mm panny are legion.
