I would suggest calling Olympus USA service and reporting the problem -- tell them about your issue with needing the camera in the short run, and ask if there is a problem with using a small dab of adhesive as a quick fix until you can send it in.

This will create a record of your problem, prior to doing any self-repair and should avoid any 'voided warranty' issues once you do send it in.

I would ignore those who suggest just simply gluing the grip material down and going on without sending it in for repair. The problem is that if you put a dab of glue on the part that is detached, experience tells me that the rest of the grip will simply start to separate later on.

Best to check with Olympus and make sure whatever you do does not create warranty problems down the road.
