Quick question about tuning stablility

My Edge tremolo on my RG570 doesn't stay quite in tune
i'm gonna go the articles on this site and Rich's site, but I was thinking that maybe someone could diagnose the problem right away when i describe this symptom:
When I dive on the bar, all the strings go about 1/4 step to 1/2 step flat (all of em).
Then when I pull-up on the bar, it miraculously goes back to being in perfect tune.
Anybody have an idea what the problem is?

Definitely take a look at the tech section here and Rich's site. My guess would be that the the trem studs are not locked with the tiny set screws. It's also possible the your knife edges are dull.
