Auto gearbox issues with E34

I gave an 1995 530i touring, 3litre V8 with the auto (adaptive) sealed gearbox. Bought second hand last year with 68K genuine miles on the clock (have full service history) now done 78K
Now have the dreaded sign 'Trans Programme' come up for the second time. After the first time the car drove absolutely fine and no warning light
Had a diognostic run by a BMW dealer and they said 'new gearbox'. The second time it came on, it drove only in the top gears. Switching off and restarting the engine seemed to cure it and it drives quite normally.
Reading some of the postings it seems to me this might just be an electrical/electronic problem and I wonder if anybody else has had a similar experience or knows how to fix?
