no shake reduction in video mode

It seems that shake reduction does not work in video mode. I have the Q with FW 1.10 and the 02 lens with FW 1.01.
In picture mode, with shake reduction set to mode 2 (always active) you can hear the mechanism softly. But in video mode, no such indication. Videos are terribly shaky especially when zoomed. I can see no difference with SR turned on or off. Anyone else notice this ?

Have you selected "SR On" in the video part of the menu?

Yes, I have set it on, and the SR hand icon is displayed with the word "on". The hand turns solid green when recording starts. But there is definitely no SR effect.
Compare this to photo mode with SR mode 2 (so you can see the effect), where SR is clearly evident.
