Default software upgrades?

In a previous post, I mentioned a strange transmission issue that happens when I come off freeway speed, come to a stop light. When I proceed when the light changes the car starts in 1st gear fine but when it shifts to 2nd it acts like the transmission disengages, rpm increases. I let off the throttle and the transmission engages and all is fine.

In the previous post, someone mentioned a software upgrade that fixes the "transmission flair". So I called the dealer and spoke with the service tech. (It went about like I expected)

He told me he had no knowledge of a transmission "flair" issue and that there are many software upgrades that fix many different issues. He couldn't find any software upgrades that addressed anything with the transmission. He asked for the software upgrade # that I heard about. Anyone out there have any idea? Car: 2004 9-5 ARC
