Then don't use the Autopilot !  I truely think its a training issue and is not worth grounding the whole fleet.  A 767  went in recently.  Same type of accident, we going to ground them?  It could be a RECENTLY designed software issue but the aircraft has to many hours on them for a defect to have not turned up in flight test or in fleet service.

I don't think there is anyone on this forum that has the experience to put forth a viable opionion, myself included, on an accident before it has even been investigated.  Thats the Media's Job (sarcasm, for those too young to recognize it.)

To the OP " A serious excersion by the auto pilot at the most inopportune time might be beyond the pilot's ability to correct."  What's to be said about an autorotation inside the HV curve ?  Do we ground all helicopters because there is a point where its possibly outside the pilots ability to react safely?  If the airplane is being flown in accordance with FARs and the flight manual the autopilot should be off at an altitude that would allow an alert pilot to recover from an excursion.  Key word being ALERT.  As one who came from stream gauges to Glass, problems take longer to recognize with Glass. IMO
