This problems was discussed on the S-cars list (www.audi-s-cars.com)
recently.  You might want to check the mail archives there to see the
various responses, but basically it seems to be a very common "problem"
with S4/6s and the general consensus was it's not a problem.  When I first
bought my car I tried the bomb and servo tests that have been posted on the
q-list in the past and it passed both.  Had the car for a year and haven't
had any problems...knock on wood...probably just woke up the Audi gods with
that statement
