Not an expert on VW but taking reverse off of 5th gear seems wrong to me, that gear is just too high for reverse, maybe a VW tech can get in on this, as far as a broken mount, yes I have seen this get things out of line can cause things not to work right, but never not staying in gear, mostly bad vibrations and clinking sounds on front wheel drive vehicles. I would get the mount replaced and recheck all the others, if they show any signs of wear replace them too, and then see if your problem persists or goes away.
