It could be that your idle speed control system is not working correctly. The minimum idle speed could be low due to a dirty throttle body or the idle air control valve could be sticking. Try giving it a little throttle when it is going to stall. If that keeps the engine from stalling then I would strongly suspect that you do have some sort of idle control problem.
