Distronic woes

I have a 2009 GL 320 Bluetec. My only real complaint so far is the Distronic. It cuts out after 10 to 50 minutes if there are no other cars on the road (here in Saskatchewan that can happen frequently). Apparently I'm not the only one with the problem. I believe it is a software/safety issue - if the radar does not detect any other cars, it believes it is malfunctioning and shuts down the cruise control. My dealership has been very helpful but I don't think MB Canada have acknowledged the problem yet. Any suggestions on how to get the problem resolved?
