Problems in overdrive (archive)

I have been noticing that RIGHT after the car hits overdrive (86 535i Auto), if I let off the gas for a sec and give it some more gas the car will start to shake a bit. This only occurs at abour 50mph (right when the OD kicks in). This is never a problem at highway speeds or in lower gears, only when the car is "borderline" OD. Is it a possiblility that the OD function on the tranny is giving in? Is there anything I can do short of an overhaul? Is it maybe something that I should just ignore because it isn't a big deal?

Thank You
86 535i auto (wish it was a manual lol)
