Damn thing is so sensititive, it is really hard to modulate. Just leave the power switch off when the car is cold.
I very much remember experiencing it with SMG and reading about it on forums back in my E46 days...I've experienced the surge once in the two weeks I've owned my E92 W/DCT. I will say I've been able to avoid it (so far) by adapting my throttle tip-in.
