My 03 M3 is stalling when comming to a stop

WTF... equipped with smg - had it out today for a beautiful drive - but 2-3 times it stalled on me when comming to a stop. Anyone have this problem? Is it dealer time?

I would think its SMG related. I think the computer is not engaging the clutch when your coming to a stop.
