Does your D800E (D800) still lock up and only solution is to take battery out?

Hi folks, if you have a D800E, just trying to find out (out of curiosity) whether your D800E still occasionally locks up and the only way to fix it is to take out the battery.  Mine still does!

Am using firmware A 1.00  B 1.01  and L 1.006.  Thought the last firmware was meant to resolve this issue.

I am mainly in manual mode when shoot and not even using burst shooting.   I actually don't recall all my setting when the camera freezes as usually there is a bit of a panic and I take the battery out straight away and put it back in.  Luckily the freeze hasn't taken place at any critical moments during work.

Am using Sandisk Extreme Pro  64GB SD and Extreme Pro 32GB CF.

Any suggestions for temp fixes welcomed, besides using a different camera

Also I guess this question also applies to D800's.

Finally I saw on Nikon Rumours a possible new firmware coming out, but no further news on this.

Cheers in advance.
