New AP bug

I haven't seen this reported previously. Today on freeway when I changed lanes car showed first normal "hold steering wheel" message. After car iniated lane change I got alarm sound and message "car is departing lane, hold wheel immediately".

I tried several times and warning came on every time. I disconnected AP and put it back on and after that car worked normally.
Please read Page 39 of the Manual on how to use voice commands.

Thanks. Good to know.

For those who may not have the manual handy the section in question reads:

You can use voice commands to call a contact,
navigate, or listen to Internet music. Press and
hold the voice button on the upper right side
of the steering wheel. When you hear the
tone, speak your command while continuing
to hold down the voice button. Release the
button when you finish speaking.

Note: You can also use voice commands to
provide feedback to Tesla. Say "Note",
"Report", "Bug note", or "Bug report" followed
by your brief comments. Model S takes a
snapshot of its systems, including screen
captures of the touchscreen and instrument
panel. Tesla periodically reviews these notes
and uses them to continue improving Model S.
Washington (Portland to Seattle) area here. Happened the first night we AP. Once it started it didn't stop it until car was irked and used later. Red alarm every land change, even though it successfully completed the lane change.

tge roads were wet, so I figured it was probably losing tracking but could drift until it found it again.
