Gear shifts to "P" at traffic light

Since a few weeks I have a new issue with my car. It's a 2 liter diesel with the automatic gearbox. With the start-stop function activated I drive up to a traffic light and the car comes to a stop. The engine shuts off. After exactly 6 seconds the engine switches on again and the gear shifts to P.

Incredibly annoying of course because this happens at *every* traffic light.

The good news is that this (again) is a software issue and will be solved by a full SW load.

Here's a short movie of the issue:
