5D + 580EX II switches to TTL of its own

In the course of normal operation, the flash briefly switched from
ETTL to TTL, with the result that all the pics were overexposed.

I did a search and there was mention of the cam's hotshoe being
loose as the cause so I went to tighten the hotshoe but found that
the shoe screws were not loose.

So, I'm concerned this issue will come up again. Anyone had this happen
to them? If so, did you find out the cause?
