The consensus of everyone's advice was that the ABS sensors were
misaligned or dirty. I took the car into the Audi dealer and they
checked all sensors with some kind of diagnostic equipment. Everything
checked out, so they re and re'd all sensors and cleaned them.

I am glad to report that this has cured the problem and it has not done
it since. BTW, they charged me 1.2 hours ($99.60). (Got to get a Bentley

Thanks for your help.
