DCT shifting to Neutral by itself?!

Not sure if this topic has been discussed and my apologies if it has.

Has anyone with a DCT tranny experienced the gear shifting itself to Neutral when the car is running cold? I've had a few occurrences when I'm waiting at the lights on the way to work and the idle drops to under 600rpm and the gear shifts itself to Neutral - like a safety mechanism? Then it revs up high to about 1000rpm and drops back down to idle range @ 660rpm.

Also, I'm not sure if this has got anything to do with it and the few times it has happened is when the car is in a bit of an incline? Weird. Not to mention the car next to me thinks I'm going to hit it at the lights!
