My 2003 GT auto trans has done that since day one in first gear in stop-and-go traffic. I figured it had something to do with the torque converter locking up. The auto-stick makes it easy to keep it in 2nd gear; no jerking when I do that.

Since you have a 5-speed manual, the two issues might not be related, but if it is indeed a timing issue, maybe they are.
