That it happens on manual transmissions as well is interesting.
Would think that rules out the DCT's downshifting to use engine braking.

I recall experiencing it pre-12EB37 on mine (with a DCT), but I don't use cruise control very often so I never gave it much thought.

Does seem kind of like a misfire, although my experience is it only occurs while cruise is engaged. If it's a misfire, I would expect it to do that during steady driving (without using cruise) as well.
