I've experienced the exact same issues as you and would like it if there was a longer delay before it activated or if the engine didn't shut down if the signal light is on. The other thing that concerns me is needlessly shutting a hot engine down all of the time and the affect that my have on the turbo's extremely hot bearings where the flow of cooling oil is constantly interrupted.
