I have had that message in the past. One thing I noticed, if I start the car with the drivers door open I will get that message 9 out of 10 times. The other way for me to get the message is to start the car move it a short distance then shut her down. I only get this message after the car has been shut off and same as you I have to manually eject the key. Since I started paying attention to not starting it with the door open I have yet to see this message. On a side note the first time I saw this message was after the car was reprogrammed and a fresh battery installed.
