There is an idle sensor within the Throttle Body which becomes dirty from carbon. Two things: Add a can of that Carb cleaner to a tank of gas, I know it's not supposed to have a carb but it works and second, try spraying a cleaner, they have a spray cleaner in auto store for this purpose, directly down the throttle body, under the bonnet and wipe as well as you can with a rag, working it in as far as you can. Once the sensor is clean, the stalling will stop.
