why would a ceiling fan rock back and forth when started?

I recently replaced & installed a new ceiling fan in our Game Room.  Main Wires (Red-L, White-N, Black-?, Ground).

The instructions for new fan stated wiring Black-Black + White-White + Green-Ground... However, the Red wire is always the lead/live wire throughout our house.  I wired the new fan Red-Black, and capped the Main Black wire off.  Should I have wired Black-Black?

Now that the fan is completely installed, when I turn on the fan (remote) - the fan briefly rock clockwise, and then couter-clockwise before finally speeding up to chosen setting.

What would cause the fan to breifly turn in the opposite direction, before starting to ramp-up to correct direction?
