This is a mid-70s vintage, pre-Ai Nikkor 50mm/1.4. Do I have a bad copy of this lens? If this type of aberration is typical, does it have a name? Can anyone suggest any way to ameliorate it?

On your MFT camera this is equiuvalent to about a 100mm lens on 35mm. So try using a lens hood for a 105 mm pre-Ai lens on your 50mm lens. That might ameliorate things.
