Wow... as I've mentioned, mine's the same.  This seems like a
more wide-spread phenomenon than I thought.  I've even looked in
my owner's manual in case there's a paragraph of explanation 
about the "new improved flashing sunroof switch".  Have any of
us tried to see if it flashes to the beat of the music?  Kinda like
one of those "light-organs" that were so popular back in the 70's.
That's what I'm telling people, anyway.  "It's SUPPOSED to do
that.  You think I'd pay this kind of money for a car with a NON-
FLASHING sunroof light? C'mon..."    

This reminds me:  my last car was a 1987 Coupe GT with the
digital dash (best-looking digital dash I've ever seen, b.t.w...), and
from time to time, it would change from full frightness to full dim,
randomly.  (anybody else???)  I used to tell people it was a built-in
radar detector that would flash the dash-lighting in the presence of
police radar.  "Oh, those crafty Germans!"

Oh well, I still love my car...
