Display glitches

Anyone else having issues with the display becoming unresponsive. This has happened to me several times in the last day. No auto display after taking photo, no display when pushing info button, no display when pressing the review button. Turning the camera on and off doesn't seem to help either. Status normally displayed on startup is not displayed either. Removing and replacing the battery seems to reset it to start working again.

I think it may be related to sensing the SD card or the card door. What seems to be a consistent trigger for me is trying to take a photo when I've forgotten to put the SD card back in. Can anyone else reproduce this? I'm trying to figure out whether it's hardware or firmware.

Had it once a couple of days ago, switched the camera on and wanted to check what the WB was set on but the display did not light up. Pressed all kind of buttons for about 20 seconds and then it suddenly woke up and everything was back to normal.
