The problem could be related to several things, my friend had a similar problem with his '99 Volvo S40 in 4th gear at around 45-50mph (its caught me out a few times while Ive been driving it). It was solved with replacing a worn gearbox linkage. There are a number of things that it could be, mainly due to excessive wear of the gearbox components, although it could be down to a loose gear linkage that just needs tightening up (although they usually do that during the service process if it needs it). Furthermore does it pop out of gear when you lift off the accelerator or does it do it regardless? Here is a link with an answer to essentially the question you asked on wiki answers. I wish you the best of luck in solving this problem.

Regards
