After having the same issues on mine and not being very happy with it, I happened to read Thom Hogan's review of the D800 and he states that trap focus has basically been taken away, and I've read it elsewhere.

If that's true it makes no sense. The settings are clear that you're setting your camera to only shoot when in focus, but mine snaps away whether in focus or not.

If this stays, and a firmware change does not correct it, mine in going down the road. I'll be content with my D3s.

I assume you have tried:

AF  set to "Focus" or "Focus only"

AF Activation AF-ON only        maybe Nikon have changed the wording on the D800.

Just trying to help  Harry.
