Q: Autostick shifts to neutral on 2004 Chrysler Crossfire

I have had the car for two years and with alarming frequency if I downshift too agressively or if I am simply upshifting while accelerating if I back off the throttle the transmission shifts completely into neutral and I have to coast to the side of the road shlip into park and then back into gear and the trans will act mormally again. This is really dangerous. Has anyone had the same problem or understand why the trans does this? Obviously it's over rev protection ut this is whether I am in autostick mode or just driving.
