Panasonic G9 old-four-thirds compatibility? (MMF-3 -> Oly 50mm macro)

I've had a G85 for a few years, and happily used the well-regarded original-four-thirds Olympus 50mm ED 1:2 Macro, with an Olympus MMF-3 adapter.   I just got a G9, and I find that it doesn't detect the focal length, and I can't focus (even with the ring, which obviously just sends a signal to the body) or change aperture.

Does anyone know if Panasonic stopped supporting legacy four-thirds, or if this is a question of a setting I'm missing, or a bug?  I've tried searching here, on panasonic's site, and the web in general and found nothing; it's not the easiest thing to effectively search for though.
