IIRC the car's mixture settings are predetermined until the car warms up, and then the O2 sensor kicks in, so if the car is stalling at idle only when warm, that's a good place to look. The ICV is also one of the usual suspects...

Check the idle control valve....and I think the O2 sensor may also have a part in funny running if it is knackered. See what other responses you get first though!
