It turned out to be a failed IMA battery. Honda covered it under warranty, even though the car has a salvaged title, because it is part of the emissions system. A $3000 repair otherwise!

Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) hybrid system uses high output electric motor-generator providing more efficient engine operation by capturing electrical energy during braking or deceleration and use of that energy to power the vehicle hence saving valuable fuel. The engine shut off during stops further increases efficiency of the vehicle. This can cause Damage to the Battery System if left UnRepaired for Too Long. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

I have a 2006 Honda Civic Hybrid and have had hell with it. I have also learnt much about it too.
One thing bad about the HCH2, is that the 12V battery controls the electronics, and the Hybrid battery charges the 12V battery. However the 12V battery is not charged all the time, and cannot be charged when the IMA is usually being used, and in different scenarios. (Buy a Electronic volt meter which plugs into the 12V adapter $14 Walmart))
It is possible that the 12V battery is being drained while driving and caused a voltage drop which can cause your problem. In your case, I would change the 12V battery anyway as they do not last long on Hybrids. (You may have to get Honda to trip the IMA warning lights.) In my case, changing the 12v battery helped the hybrid battery as it was the electronics reporting the charge level wrong.
Depending where you live, you will have a minimum 80,000 mile warranty on the hybrid battery.
