mine was doing alot like what you were talking about, not so much getting stuck between shifts as slipping. eg, the rpms skyrocket between gears. and then it would decide it was slipping and bump the pressure way up to where you would have teeth jarring shifts. i took it to a tranny shop by way of advice from someone either here or the buick forums and it was throwing code 1811 which is max shift adjust, which either means the shifting solenoid is gone (common problem in these trannys about $400 with labor) so i did that and that didnt fix it, which meant it was the clutches so i had to have it rebuilt for $2500.
heres the link to the buick forum thread i made.... looking back, it seems alot like your car.
