Boxster S 2nd gear pops out

My Boxster S 6-speed has started to pop out of 2nd gear when decelerating.  If I speed up to 3000-4000 RPM in 2nd, then lift off the accelerator, (as driving from one stop sign to another) the stick shift moves and pops out of gear.  It also pops out if I downshift into 2nd at higher RPM.  Second gear acceleration and all other gears are fine.  It seems to be getting worse.  For the time being, I can drive around this issue by clutching but would like to get it fixed.  I found a transmission shop online and they said they were aware of this issue and would charge $4,000 to change 2nd gear and the shift sleeve after I shipped the transmission to them.  So, is this a known 6 speed issue?  What might have caused it and what is my best approach for a cost effective solution?  Thank you, George
