Check the throttle linkage components for sticking. Make sure everything returns to 'full idle' state even when the accelerator is released very gently. Pay special attention to the little plastic wheels and microswitches. Worth trying the simple stuff first...

Sticky linkage is a very common problem, and can lead to all sorts of seemingly random problems.
