Tranny occasionally sticking in gear when stopping

Fellow listers,
An odd tranny problem has come up in the last week or so in my '92 100S
autobox.  It started last week when my inclined driveway was snow-covered. I
only got part way up before I lost traction, so I hit the brakes, knowing
spinning tire is a good way to burn out the tranny. Well, the car stalled. At
the time I thought nothing of it. Now five times in the last week my car has
stalled when I come to a stop. What happens is it seems the car is not
disengaging from being in gear when I stop (like leaving a 5 sp in gear and
stopping with the clutch out). The tranny has had some seals replaced in the
past, but no internal work. But the garage did overfill the tranny by accident
when they replaced the seals. Anyone else had or heard of a problem like this?
Any ideas what could be causing it? I know the trannies in '92 100's are
notoriously bad, from what I've heard on the list. Also, I noticed from my
Bentley that it looks like two seperate code autoboxes were used in '92 100's
(FWD). The only tranny code in Bentley is CDT, and it says it was used in '92
100 FWD's from 3/92 on. No code is listed for the earlier tranny. My car was
built in 4/92, and does have the code CDT tranny in it. Is the CDT tranny an
improved version of the old model? TIA.
