As added followup to your post (kingstril and ikaikamute) the violent shaking demonstrated on my 2007 camry hybrid was first observed upon turning off the engine after running the vehicle. The subsequent occurances were all upon starting or with a start and rapid shut down.
One question for both of you. Have either observed numerous occurances of engine not being ready (shift to park first message) if you go through sequence too fast. My unit seems to require a very deliberate slow sequence of brake on, push start button, wait 1-2 seconds, shift out of park. Any deviance/simultaneous action/ or failure to wait causes warning message.

Note, I found another video on youtube with the same issue. www.youtube.com/watch?v=zRY7eHgOJTc . It seems there IS a pattern here. So how do we get Toyota to address the issue? For now just don't shut the car off until after the ICE has been on for at least 30 seconds.

Just wanted to know if you ever got this issue resolved. I am having the same problem. Service dept. says they have not seen it before, the panel is rivet in so should not be a problem. At the time I went in, parts from overseas were in short supply and not soon coming because of the earthquake and tsunami.
I've considered using strips of felt to cushion the filter, but thought I'd ask first.
Thanks for your input.
