I too have this problem! Unfortunately I only found out too late after I bought the lens secondhand. Looking on the net there are sooo many people with this same problem (ie. unable to turn the manual focus ring back from infinity when pointing over 35 degree up from horizontal plane). A 5 seconds google search yields these links:

This is very disappointing! Clearly this is a widespread problem affecting a large number of people who have paid a lot of money for this glass, and yet Canon does not acknowledge it. They really should offer at the very least a free repair option for anyone affected by this.
