Problem with L5973D

I am designing a circuit with a L5973D switching regulator to provide 3.8v and am facing a peculiar problem. The circuit is as per the design reference in the datasheet and the feedback resistors are given to provide 3.8v output (10K and 4.7K). Initially, I get 3.8v. But while leaving the circuit connected, it starts inching up about 10mV every 10 minutes or so. Furthermore, powering down the circuit and then back up does not cause it to provide 3.8v again. Wondering what's going on....
