By taping the E-PL1 comms contacts and using the flash in auto I get 1/320 sec sync with no shutter shadow at 4:3 ratio. At 16:9 ratio 1/400 sec leaves a tiny smear of shadow at the bottom of the frame.

How in the world do you manage a tiny smear of shadow on 16:9 but none on 4:3 if 16:9 is simply a crop of 4:3? At the very least, you should get more shutter blockage in the native 4:3 aspect ratio.

I said 16:9 1/400 second leaves a tiny smear, but at full frame of 4:3 it needs a slower 1/320 second to avoid all smear. The factory setting of 1/160 second is really conservative.
