Does your 20/1.7 lens hunts when used on E-PL5/EM5 shooting video with AF set to AF-S?

I configure the E-PL5 movie mode to M, manually select aperture and shutter speed, and the AF mode to AF-S.  However, when I shoot video (kids making a mess in the bath room) in low light using the Panasonic 20/1.7 lens, I seem to still see focusing "breathing," if that is the correct term for the lens to momentarily lose focus and refocuses.  I double checked the AF-mode and confirmed that it is AF-S.  Does anyone else notice this?  On GH1, once focus is locked, I usually switch the focus mode to Ml using the dial on the left, and the focus will not move at all.
