Olympus 300m f4 PRO clunking

This lens clunks a lot when walking.  I guess it's the IS element but it sure doesn't sound healthy.  I normally have the camera slung across my chest holding the lens barrel in my left hand.  There is no problem then.  However, if I need both hands while walking leaving the camera and lens slung across the chest, it clunks at every step.
Does anyone know if Olympus has said anything about this? Is it something to be avoided or can it be safely ignored?
