The fact that it does it in park may be because there is no load on the engine from the transmission. When you stop at lights, I presume you leave it in Drive. If this is the case, the engine is working against the torque convertor which will slow it down a bit.

Have you had anything done to the car recently that my have disturbed something under the bonnet? If your car has engine management it could be an electrical fault like a faulty sensor. Or it could be something as simple as the accelerator cable sticking - especially if it is worn and the inner has frayed and is binding on the outer.

I wouldn't have thought so, unless maybe you got some of it in a sensor nearby or something. I don't know if your car has things like that under the bonnet that may affect the carburettor settings if they go wrong.
