PKQ Adapter concerns with Q7

Hey guys, I wonder if anyone else has seen this.... it only seems to happen on my Q7 and my original Q seems to be ok. What started out as a minor uncommon issue has now become a pretty regular occurrence. The shutter on the Q-K Pentax adapter does not open anymore unless I unmount and remount with the camera turned on.

the timeline looks like this:

take a few shots, on the fourth/fifth shot the shutter would not reopen on the Q-K adapter.
turn on camera, take a shot, adapter would not open the shutter, turn camera off, turn back on shutter would work. happens 100% of the time starting this past Monday
today morning: shutter just wouldn't open unless the adapter was taken off the Q7 and then mounted while the camera is turned on.
today evening: shutter is now not reopening after 2 or 3 shots OR exhibiting this mornings concern with remounting the adapter

camera firmware v 1.01

My Q7 doesn't behave like that at all. The shutter just fires as expected.

My Q7 works great with K mount lenses.

I believe there were a couple of early K-Q adapters that had a similar issue and had to be returned but those were on the Q not Q7.
