I'm in a show-offy mood, so I'll answer my own question.
Disputer sur la pointe d'une aiguille.
I tried the 'No speaka da lingo' thing with 'my' gendarme, but it didn't work, he was probably just having a bad day. Maybe I should add that I've driven in France many times, and this was the only spot of bother I've ever had with French officialdom, but I still think that there's a good deal of deliberate targetting of foreign-registered cars.
