Hi Andrew, 

Long time no talk.  Since this is only happening in Park and neutral just 
make sure the idle switch is tripping.  You might be at a point with wear
 in the throttle spool and link rod, that you have developed a hair trigger
 situation. When you put the transmission in a loaded position. It rocks the
 engine forward or backwards just enough to stretch the linkage and make
 the switch trip.  You probably just need to extend the linkage rod 
between the spool and butterfly assembly to take out some play.
