I'm not sure if this has anything to do with the lateral motion you
observed, but the couple of times I watched the new B777's take off at
Boeing Field recently, I was struck by the oscillations in the tail
stabilizers as the engines revved for takeoff.

The tail stabilizers flopped up and down quite a bit as the engines
accelerated, but seemed to stop as the plane gained speed and lifted
off.

Yours is an interesting note, and well described!
