DCT over revving, car not accelerating. Dangerous

I know there are other long posts on the DCT issues but wanted to see if anyone has experienced this one.

Today I was driving, accelerating from a stop. Had the usual pull off shudder. The car gets to 40mph. Suddenly it jurks and the revs climb to 5000rpm, but no acceleration.

I then took my foot off the accelerator applied the brakes and tried again. Same thing.

Then I put the car into sport mode from a stop. The car rpms dropped below 400rpm and the car started shaking. I also noticed that the "S" light on the dash was not illuminated.
I then put the car back in "D" and pulled off. The same thing happened again.
Then put it in "S" and tried to pull off....revs went up past 4000...no acceleration.

I then turned off the car, opened the door, closed the door, started the car....and now it is fine, exept for the usual pull off shudder.

This is plain dangerous....Luckily I was not on a busy street or the freeway which I drive daily.

Has anyone had this happen and what was, if any, your resolution.

PS I have had the update 12b17 done.

thanks in advance.
