Even though it idles OK when stopped, it could still be a sticky IAC, Try cleaning it and the throttle body.

I would also be suspecious of the throttle position sensor, but try cleaning the IAC and throttle body first.

I agree, but it sounds more like the TPS than the IAC or Throttle body. The TPS is very easy to get at. Quick and easy fix.
