Problem using flash compensation with external flash on GX1

I just traded my GF1 for a GX1, mainly for the better IQ at ISO 1600.

I'm finding that flash exposure compensation works fine with the built-in flash but it doesn't seem to do anything with my FL-360 (set on TTL) -- exposure looks the same regardless of the setting. The exposure compensation on the flash itself doesn't seem to work, either, and it's not changing FL settings when I zoom the 45-175 I got with the new camera.

Has anyone else noticed these problems? Am I missing a setting I need to change somewhere or doing something else wrong? I guess it could be a problem with the flash unit...

Thanks for any advice.
