DCT quirk after 12B37 update

So I had the recalibration done 2 weeks ago exactly and I've been holding off on posting this or checking in with the dealership and wanted to ask if anyone else is having this issue...

So, I'll be driving to/from work or on the interstate with cruise control on (haven't paid attention to whether or not this happens without using CC) and occasionally and for no apparent reason my transmission will kind of hiccup, that's the best way I can describe it. For instance on cruise doing 50 to and from work, my tach sits about 1800RPMs, when these hiccups occur the tach will "spike" up to 2000-2100RPMs and then back down, and I can feel that it almost disengages and I can feel the car slow for that split second and then regain itself and the RPMs settle back to 1800 or so.

It's tough to catch because it happens intermittently (but I'd say a few times every time I drive) and I can't just keep paying attention to the tach.

I tried to snag a video, you can see it happen twice in this video, but it's shaky and I apologize for that, couldn't really help it though.

First hiccup around 0:17-0:18, second around 0:55. Also, pardon the music, didn't bother changing the station when I got in. I'm more of a punk/rock/ska kinda guy.
