Do you guys think an EX1 would be an OK gift for a tech-clumsy mother?

No, it's not. Get her a simple P&S camera.

IMO, for people who are not into photography the #1 requirement in full auto is a flash that pops up automatically. The EX1 has a lot of other quirks but this point alone should be a dealbreaker.
