Intelligent Exposure (iEx) of G1 with manual focus lenses: doesn't seem to work

The Intelligent Exposure (iEx) feature of the G1, a similar feature to Olympus' SAT, Sony's DRO, and Nikon's Active D-Lighting, and a feature I leave ON all the time, doesn't work at all when I attach my Voigtlander lens.

What I want to know is, does this state of affairs happen just with manual focus lenses and DSLR lenses that don't provide electronic communication with the camara body, or does it also happen with Oly lenses that only manually focus? Does it even work with any Oly lenses?

Further, is it peculiar to the G1 (a bug/oversight) or does this behaviour exhibit itself with the GF1 and GH1 too?

For readers who don't know what iEx is or does, here is an explanation:

Thanks in advance.
