By taking custody of the assets instead of having them transferred directly you have exercised a privilege that can be done only once per calendar year, if I recall correctly.

I concur except for this statement. The rollover provisions are limited to once every twelve months. They are not on a calendar year basis.

A further comment to the original poster.

You mentioned withholding on this transaction. If you want to do a complete rollover, you will need to make up the amount withheld from other funds. If you only roll over the NET proceeds (after the withholding), you will have taken a distribution from your Roth in the amount of the withholding. Don't forget to account for that withdrawl in your future distributions.
