Bumped the ignition key and my VF died?

I picked up my VF international Sportwagen today.

I was driving along the Ipswich motorway, flicked on the cruise control and then repositioned my right leg. As I did this my knee bumped the key and the car died. All the gauges went to off, the DIC went blank, the engine died. I had no indicators or anything. The only thing I could do was glide to a stop on the side of the road. I turned the car off and restarted it and it was all good again.

I had only covered 15km in the car and this happened. Has it happened to anyone else?

Was still able to steer and brake but had no power (obviously).

Did you actually knock the key out of the ignition position?

Can't say if I did or not but it would have been a strange sort of contact to twist the key from on to accessories though?
