Please help - IRIS locked even in Manual mode

My EX1 just came back from SONY with the battery problem fixed and firmware upgraded to 1.05

However, when I put the IRIS to manual mode, the iris ring is still in the lock position and I don't seem to be able to turn it freely like I used to before sending to SONY. Am I missing something here or SONY messed up wih my cam? Any advise?

I think this is the cause of "iris lock" more often than not. It's hard to see the full auto light in daylight and it's easy to accidentally push the button.
