My radio (probably 2 years old) has done this as well, but always (?) =
during RX and when tuning the VFO. I have been able to get the radio to =
"take" a freq from the computer and reset. 
On 40M I have noticed that the radio will jump 100 Khz sometimes, which =
can easily be remedied by hitting the up or down arrow on the radio (or =
sending it a new freq from the computer).
As Bill says, it's annoying!
