gearbox groaning

Hi all,

My W111 3.5 Coupe is equipped with a later 3 speed auto trans, I guess out of a 4.5. Since a few days, when the car is cold, the gearbox starts groaning badly when it shifts from 1st the 2nd. At that point, I usually hit the first traffic light round the corner of my house. When I start again, the groaning has disappeared. later, when the engine gets warmer, the groaning comes back, but is much much less nosier. The groan is related to rpms. What is it?

Thanks for the help!
