If you totally stop then pull away its fine!
Also seems to behave a lot better in sport mode.
Have the exact same problem on mine, slowing down for a rounabout etc, if you don't fully stop and try to accelerate the car seems to pause while it works out what it wants to do, then drops down a gear and lurches forward with quite a noticeable thump, almost as if the gearbox was caught on the hop. It doesn't really happen very often but now you've mentioned it I'll try the throttle reset.

So what is the exact procedure? Foot on throttle and just key in ignition? Do you need to press the engine start button at any point?
