Count me in on this hesitation too.  I find if I let the car idle for about
30 seconds or so before pulling out of the garage, and then ease into the
throttle and shift before 3000 rpm until it warms up a bit there's no hesitation.
But if I pull out of the garage right after starting and accelerate moderately
it bucks for a couple of seconds in 1st, then shifting into 2nd it behaves
normal from then on.

My theory is that it has something to do with people named David.  ;)
