OM-1 Freeze / Lockup

I have an OM-1 on v1.1 firmware lockup today while doing half-presses on the shutter button to obtain focus. Searching the forums came up with the following post which seems to mirror what happened in my case:

Turning off the camera did not help. The camera appeared to stay 'on' even though the EVF and LCD were blacked out. After a few minutes, the left side of the camera body felt warm to the touch and a battery pull was needed to return the camera to service.

Does anyone have a similar experience? If so, was the issue identified and resolved?

I am aware that v1.1 was supposed to resolve a freezing issue when using high refresh EVF. This did not apply in my case.
