Repeatedly frozen Model Y screen linked to lumber support?

I'm new to Tesla having only owned my Model Y for two weeks now, but it has a fault that I want to see if anyone else is experiencing.

Every time I get in to the car after having been away from it long enough for it go to sleep, the screen becomes unresponsive and you can't interact with it through touch.

To temporarily fix the issue I have to reboot the car by holding the scroll wheels.

If you can believe this, according to the Tesla engineers I have a mismatched firmware version in the lumbar support control unit, which is causing the problem. They say there is no fix yet, but they are working on it.

Apparently this is happening to a lot of UK Model Y's, but I haven't seen any other reports of it.

Anyone else have to reboot their Tesla every time they get in it?
