That is a common problem! So much so that MB has modified the 2 rubber hoses that connect the idle control valve to the intake.
If you order these hoses & install them properly the stalling should go away.
MB part numbers 116-094-12-91, 116-094-13-91 & 116-997-16-52. Make sure that the small plastic tube is OPEN at both ends.
All of the parts should cost less than $15. TOTAL!
