I agree on that, I've had it happen in the past too especially on 
particularly smooth pavement.

You were probably feeling one of the rear tires locking up to try and 
counter understeer. If it felt like the car was being "dragged down" for a 
moment even after the turn straightened out, this was definitely the 
traction control interfering. Highly annoying ...

:> [ vibration shaking in wet corner ]
: Could very well be ESP and EDL.  I read somewhere that even if you turn 
: the ESP switch on the console, it is still active at some level.  Part of
: what these systems do is selectively braking at individual wheels via
: the ABS system, so the vibration could be brake modulation pulses.
