hah yeah, you can really get those things rocking and rolling while trying to crawl along in traffic.. or reversing. The technology in them is more than a few years old now, so they're not nearly as intelligent as new automated-manual transmissions.
ie, sometimes when you just want to crawl along a little bit, you give it a bit of throttle to make the clutch grab just a bit... but sometimes it'll want to finish its clutch engagement and you lurch forward a lot and have to jam on the brakes :p Fun times.
