Transmission shudder?

My 5 speed 'shudders' badly when I put it in reverse and let the clutch out. It's feels like the transmission is loose big time, but the mount is brand new (same with the engine mounts.) it only does this after sitting for a bit/cold, and gets much better after driving for a few. Does this sound like a clutch issue?

I'm some what mechanically apt, but have little experience with manuals. I know my throw out bearing makes noise until you push in the clutch but it seems to work well otherwise. Hopefully it's not related, or the clutch on the way out... any suggestions would be great...

Sounds like clutch chatter to me. My YJ started doing it about a year ago, it got progressively worse til finally *POW*, the clutch took a shiat and had to replace it. It would happen the first 4-5 times I let out the clutch after sitting all night. Feels like a shudder/shake/shimmy just as you're letting out the clutch.
