I picked up the 40mm for my T2i.

The second time I use it the focus locks up.

I was aware of this issue, so I went and downloaded the firmware, loaded it on a card and put it in my T2i.

The camera does not detect the firmware.

I go back and look at the release notes:
"Cameras that can be used for the firmware update: Canon EOS-1D X (*1), Canon EOS 5D Mark III (*1,*2), or Canon EOS Kiss X6i/REBEL T4i/650D "


That doesn't mean that your T2i can't be USED with the updated lens, just that your T2i is incapable of performing the update.  Send the lens into Canon and get it updated for free.  You might give them a call and see if you can sweet-talk the rep into providing a free shipping label to avoid the shipping cost.

Good luck!
