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

There are many threads covering how well the 20/1.7 focuses (although almost all cover still photography rather than video).  Here's a current example: http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3398954

The usual term is "hunting" rather than "breathing" for the a lens struggling to AF.

The 20 often makes a bit of noise when focusing  which leads some to conclude that it's not the best lens for video.
