Very puzzling problem

I have mention this before, but now have a bit more info. My 1098 sometimes cuts out whist on tick over (both when hot and when warm) but when it cuts out it wont start again, as if something is sticking, starter tries to turn but hardly turns the engine over, its with my Ducati guy at the moment so when this happened the first thing he checked was the battery, but when load tested it was fine, all wiring is good and just replaced the relays. He has been checking all the electrics and all seams fine, he thinks it might be something mechanical. When the bike is left for 10mins it then fires up as if there are no problems. Doesn't happen all the time, and if I have been riding the bike for a while then stop, 9 times out of 10 it fires up as normal.
When it cuts out it does so with a very sudden jolt and a bit of a noise.
Could a valve be sticking, it feels like the piston is jamming in the bore.
When its running its fine, responsive, no noises, no smoke, no missing, and runs a smooth as a Ducati can.
Has this happen to anybody else, or does anybody have any ideas on what it could be?

I seem to remember something about that problem & a recall/fix from Ducati ? Give Rich at louigi moto a call I think he told me about it! I could have dreamt it though:-/.
