This isn´t a E46 question, but I have seen this on so many other cars... Mostly E39, E38 I think...
I don´t know how to describe it properly so please watch the video... Look how the rpm "stops" going up for a half second then continues (at about 00:08 seconds)... This happens on my 2000 E39 530dA too... As I said I saw it happen on many other cars, including petrol E39s, E38s with different engines...
Someone told me that it´s torque converter but I don´t really know what´s that...
Thanks... and don´t kill me because it´s a non e46 question... :)

Actually I have that from time to time ... mine is at about 160 ... it used to just falter for a second, now it simply doesn't go past 160 :S
Well I think you have a little bit different problem...
This is something that is, I guess normal, I just wonder what´s that...
Anyone?
