Just an update on this,
I experienced the same today whilst driving on the motorway, about 10mins after starting the car up. I changed down to 4th and back to 5th but this time it was still flashing. All working OK though. Stopped at service station and then whenever I was changing up gear I couldn't select 2nd and it had to skip up to 3rd etc. It did this once more when I hit a queue of traffic further down the motorway but then fine after that.
When I got home I plugged in the laptop but no fault codes stored on either main or Selespeed ECU. I did a clutch drain (which failed first time I tried, worked whenever engine switched on). I then turned off the engine and kept key at MAR, tried an EOL calibration but just got Selespeed failure. I tried again and FES reported 'Failed to Execute' message but the routine did actually run OK and it did the usual stuff.
I'm hoping its just a calibration issue and not something else!
Will keep you posted..
