Multiple flash pulses when using Fill Flash mode.

Does anyone know why the flash fires multiple times on the E-M1 when you're using Flash Fill mode?

I would expect this if you've selected Red-Eye Reduction mode.

It happens very quickly but it looks like the flash fires 2-3 times very rapidly when in Flash Fill mode and using a normal flash sync shutter speed (< 1/250). I know when using shutter speeds faster than 1/250 the flash has to fire multiple times but with normal shutter speeds this shouldn't be needed.

On a side note, it's really cool that the camera can sync with the flash at super high shutter speeds.   1/2000 is no problem when you have a supported flash attached.
