"D4 locks up at rare moments"

I am greatly enjoying my new D4, with one exception thus far. In the heat of the moment, when repeatedly adjusting focus (AF-on), aperture, and VR (shutter half way) and shooting away, the camera suddenly hangs up. Power remains on, LCD panels show information, but the shutter no longer operates, and power cannot be switched off. The solution is to turn the camera to off (though it seems to remain on), pull the battery and restore it, and then turn the camera back to on. All is returned to normal. This glitch is rare but annoying--perhaps 3 times in 2500 photos during a recent trip. It seemed to occur more often when using the new Sony memory card, so I switched to my usual Sandisc CF card (extreme IV pro). That may be a hint at the problem. My wife's D7000 did the same thing when new, and the problem disappeared after the first firmware update. She was using a very fast SD card, and the problem was reduced when using a slower card.
Any others witness this problem, and if so, determined the problem? I suspect it entails memory/processing/control traffic problems tripping over each other.
Cheers
