"Wobbling" autofocus in AF-C Panasonic G9

When dpreview did its review of the Panasonic G9 it commented on the the "wobbling" effect of the autofocus in AF-C when shooting a basketball game. I had no idea what they were talking about until I was shooting my grandson playing soccer (football). I had his face in point focus following him running around and it was "wobbling" - somewhat like looking at some thing through heat waves arising from a hot sidewalk. Very strange. Most if the pictures were sharp enough, but it was a weird experience. Has Panasonic commented on this, is it fixable? I switched to AF tracking and didn't see it again. Forum help me out here...thoughts, work-arounds, comments on significance. Is depth-to-defocus fatally flawed?
