With mine it was supposedly a combination of a dodgy ECU and oxygen sensor.

Plug or back off the booster and see if it still happens that will tell you straight away.

Re: stalling when foot brake applied

Check for vacuum leaks, the valve on booster may not be working either,so it won't be storing any vacuum.Then when you use brakes it robs it from engine..Or even leaking diaphram in booster..Better get it checked out !!!
