Try it with the A/C on and A/C off too ( changing engine load.)
Hey Tired what you suggested, and it is still doing it but seems to be harsher in DS, and in manual mode, like others I think its narrowed down between 5th and 6th gear. I don't understand why all of us can feel this issue, but nothing is being done about it. Great customer support sometimes...
