What is wrong with the D800 live view?

Last week when I tested a D800 I have noticed a very strange behavior with the live view. I used a fairly slow CF (Sandisk Extreme IV) and after each image the camera took several seconds (about 5-10) to flash the buffer. During that time the camera was not able to take an image. Why is that so? I mean, even if the card is slow and the data is huge, isn't the buffer deep enough for more than one image in live view? That would be horrible and that is definitely a bug in my opinion.
