To make matter worst, both EOS-M lenses have only a 3/8 to 1/2 inch wide band at the base to be grab . And they are VERY SMOOTH.

I'd say it's normal. My three EF-M mounts (22/2, 18-55, EF adapter) all require a bit more force to rotate into place than EF lenses on my 1D X. In addition, with their smaller diameter and lighter weight, it's also a bit more difficult to turn the M lenses, adding to the feel of them not mounting as smoothly (I notice a similar effect comparing the 40/2.8 pancake on my 1D X to a 'typical' lens like the 24-70).
+1. The size and weight, or mass of the lens you are handling. You often hear people who have had their first experience of mounting a large, heavy lens such as the 70-200/2.8 complaining that it is too loose.
I do notice a little more resistance when mounting M lenses...assumed it was normal. I wouldn't worry about it.
CanonRumors rocks! Thank you all for your responses and assurances!
