I wouldn't call it unpredictable if you know that it's going to happen; it's annoying, but much better than a delay in the same gears downshifting.

Anyway, I have the same issue after getting my clutch replaced. After some testing I found an interesting thing - after you shift from 2->3, then immediately shift back down to 2 then back up to 3, there is no delay.

I'm hoping that breaking in the clutches will alleviate the problem.
