Optical Flow Sensor - Focus and PY utility

I realized after posting comments in the documentation, that it was the wrong place.  So here I am to ask the following:

Can someone explain what may be causing the Python image capture to hang? It will capture 1 - N images then stop with the following message:

line 11incomplete (19 of 30), ignoring 12,16,8,8,12,12,16,20,28,36,40,60,96,96,76,48,16,8,

How does someone determine that their sensor is in focus? As grainy as the image is given the resolution, it is every difficult to determine focus. I decided through experimentation that 'out of focus' was when the image was mostly just gray and had no contrast. Therefore, the image with the most contrast, must be 'in focus'.  Is this the correct approach?

Thanks in Advance.
