"RE: Cold-boot reset for D700 (or other digital SLR) VR or autofocus fault."

The mystery deepens. Although VR is behaving much better since the cold-boot, there is still an intermittent fault:

Immediately I switch the camera ON with the VR lens fitted, either

a. It operates normally, or

b. VR operates for about 1 second after switching the camera ON, independent of whether the VR switch is ON or OFF (the image in the viewfinder twitches briefly).
* If I touch the shutter during that period, VR will subsequently operate normally.
* If I leave the shutter during that period, VR will not operate subsequently, but I can restore VR operation by cycling the VR switch.

Has anyone had a similar experience? Is it something I am doing wrong, or is it a known fault?

Meanwhile I have been using my 70-300mm VR lens recently in difficult circumstances, and am really getting to like it used with the D700's amazing 3D autofocus mode.
