Q adapter shutter problem

I just picked up my Q to K mount adapter which is the one right from Ricoh. But after using it for about an hour the shutter started to sometimes cycle two or three times and then stay closed. When this happens you can't see any preview for obvious reasons. I am running firmware 1.12 and have two fully charge Pentax batteries. Has anyone else experienced this?

Yes Amy did (pearsaab) and then another person after she reported.
It is defective, you should send it back.
