Because it was a private neighborhood, and I had clear visibility, I started to go almost immediately. I completely forgot about the stop/start, but it shut the engine down right as I was letting go of the brake, which kicked the start sequence in at the same moment. The car jerked a bit, and the engine stalled. Getting it started again involves a lot more steps than you'd think.
OK, I didn't realise the car could shift the 8AT into neutral by itself. This is strange and I can understand how stressful it would feel when it happens in heavy traffic.

Hope it can be resolved.
