"D3 shutter speed all over the place..."

Shot a game last night with my new to me D3. Early on I found the shutter speed jumping from shot to shot. It would drop down during continuous shooting then shoot up. I was shooting in Manual. While trying to troubleshoot the issue I found it did the same in Aperture Priority.

I did a reset and it worked fine for a while then it started again. A second reset solved the issue for the rest of the game.

I bought this D3 at a local retailer. It was a demo with only just over 18,000 clicks on it. I just got it back from Nikon where they had to fix a loose meter switch. They apparently made a few other adjustments according to the service report. This was all covered under warranty.

Any idea what this issue is? Anyone else have this happen?

TIA
