I believe this is a built in feature that allows the catalytic convertor to come up to temp before allowing the transmission to shift from 1st to 2nd. I have the same situation with my 92 500 SEL and my mechanic assured me that this is normal. Now I just warm the car up a while longer in the morning and it has become a non issue. I could be wrong about it being the Cat Convertor, although it is surely some other heat sensitive device.
