MX-1 shuts down in Av mode

I have had three separate instances where I was trying to get a shot at f/8 in Av mode, and when I press the shutter button, the camera shuts down. I was able to get the shot by switching to P mode and dialing the aperture I wanted.

Before I call Customer Support, has anyone else seen this behavior?

By the way, I posted my review of the MX-1 here...Pentax MX-1 - Pentax Compact Digital Cameras - Pentax Camera Reviews and Specifications
