If it is just a line or 2 of code, why hasn't VW fixed it, probably because it reveals compromises else where.
True race cars have to engage the drive in every gear. Yet they seem to do just fine on race tracks.
As to the SW, its a design issue. VW has just decided they want the auto shifting. Yes its a compromise, but its one to keep the non hard core drivers happy
Its not a mechanical limitation.
