Focus problem - is this a fault in the G7 camera

What I'm trying to find out is if I have a fault on my G7 camera or does this normally happen with the G7 camera.

When video recording the focus will change for a moment and what I'm recording goes out of focus. There doesn't seem a reason why the camera should attempt to refocus after it has correctly focused on a subject. There is nothing that becomes near the camera for the change in focus to happen. It can happen once within a 5 minute video clip and goes out of focus for a few seconds. It's enough ruin an important moment.

The camera is set to AFS/AFF

What I need to know is do owners of the G7 camera also have this problem?

If needed I could upload a video clip example.
