My thoughts on this topic

The OP never presented any evidence that the camera was front-focused or back-focused, he just showed us some blurry photos.

Maybe the EM-5 has an IBIS bug like the Pens? Maybe the lens has a bug like the 14-42X lens?

Maybe the lens mis-focused because the focus point is so big that it focused on the wrong thing?

I for one have definitely observed focus bugs using the 14-54 mk I lens in my dimly lit apartment. However, I just assume that the old PDAF lenses just aren't supported well and this doesn't suggest at all that the camera would have problems focusing a native m43 lens.

However, it's certainly within the realm of possibility that the OP's EM-5 had exactly the problem the OP thinks it had, that it randomly misfocuses with the 12-50mm lens. We just don't know.
