Intake Gaskets (archive)

What is the test for intake gaskets? I remember something about spraying carb cleaner and the idle changes. Is that right? Should it go up? Obviously if the gaskets are bad that is.
My idle at a stoplight is usually about 700-800, but every once in a while it will be around 1000, I tap the gas, and it drops down to normal again. Is this a sign of intake gaskets, or something else?
