280SEL dies on warm idle

My 280SEL is acting up. It drives without a problem, but it will stall when I slow to an idle. This only happens after I have been driving long enough to fully warm the engine. The engine slows down with the car and just keeps slowing until it shuts off instead of hitting idle.

This problem is only a nuisance to me, but I can see it being quite dangerous to the girl who normally drives the car. Therefore I hope to be able to fix it soon. Any help?
