As for the roll-back, it's to be expected unless you engage the HSA (hill-start assist). Since it's an 'auto-manual' it does have the tendancy of a manual to roll backwards if you don't have a foot on the brake.
I'm not gonna hunt for car reviews from critics bashing the Powershift and MFT,it's full out there.As for high octane fixing transmission issue ,this is total BS.If it's true ,it's because your engine has serious problems or there was something very wrong with the regular gasoline you were using before.

As for the roll-back, this can avoided by simply releasing the brake slowly to give a chance to the clutch to engage.
