This started to happen on my GT 1.9 JTD. Began popping out of sixth gear.
When in sixth, as soon as I used the throttle you could see the gear lever moving towards neutral and from time to time it would pop out into neutral, even with the cruise on and not accelerating.
Likely cause was that I had been running a power box and boost mod and had been leaning too hard on sixth gear when accelerating from low revs.
It was suggested it would require a gearbox rebuild at some point, so I traded the car in for something else.
Luck is the residue of opportunity and design...
