M6 Mark ii - What am I doing wrong? Or a bug?

I have had my M6 ii for while now. While I really enjoy it, I have been bothered by something that seems to occur randomly.  I believe this may only occur in Manual mode, since that is normally how I shoot, but here is the problem:

During a session, I will be happily shooting along. Then suddenly when I look through the viewfinder or the screen. I will notice it is completely white. What I notice is the Shutter speed has changed itself to a very slow value.  For example, I may be shooting at F5.6, 1/320s and Iso 400.  Suddenly the shutter speed changes to, for example, bulb or 2 seconds or something like that. I can easily set it back, but by then I may have missed the opportunity.

I suppose I am probably pressing something by accident, but I cannot figure out what it is and it is getting annoying. Has anyone else seen this? What am I doing? Is it a bug?

I am at the latest FW as of the other day (v1.1.1)

Any help would be appreciated!
