S or M, makes sense. Obviously, I just forgot to set it back to A before I shut it off, but I never use P and Ps. I don't really see their purpose.

Is this a known "quirk"?
Yes, I have had that issue with mine too. It is the mode dial connections getting dirty. I have just spun the dial a little to get better connection & I think someone else had sprayed contact cleaner into it with success, but please don't try unless willing to risk it.
