GR - Change Focus Mode, needs restart to take affect

Hello, I just purchased a Ricoh GR and installed the latest firmware, version 4.00.

I noticed when I change the focus mode, multi, spot, snap, etc., it occasionally requires me to power down and power back up the unit for the setting to take effect.

Wondering if anyone else has noticed the same?

Thank you,

I figured it out. If you change the focus point in the Spot AF mode, you have to cancel out of it entirely by hitting the reset (display) button twice (once to reset the focus point to center, another to cancel) to allow a different focus mode to be enabled.
