450D with a mind of its own

I've a 450D (Xsi) that has developed an intermittent gronk. Its in Single Shot mode. But at odd times, I press the shutter down to take a shot and then fully release the button, but it continues to fire off shots as fast as it can. I have to turn the camera off and then on again in order to make it stop. On the next shots though if functions as it should.

Other than sending it in for repairs, any ideas?
