I was looking for bowing examples and looked at this oft-cited gorgeous recording:
Now go to ~30 seconds (scroll-view) and multiple subsequent repeats (e.g. 3'43 gives a face on view) David stops the D string with the 3rd and 2nd fingers simultaneously as he does his vibrato. There is no obvious reason for finger placement for the next note - indeed at 43 he moves both fingers to the new note and does the same thing.
Is there a reason for this - is it a trick for a more expressive vibrato?
