Idle problems

I am still have idle problems.  The car used to have an erratic idle or
it would idle at 1800 RPM.  The Idle Control Valve was replaced and now
it idles just under 1000RPM but if you accelerate gently it will bog
down at around  1400RPM.  The garage tested and adjusted the TPS so they
do not think that this is where the problem lies.  The other symptom is
that when it idles it idles very rich.  There is a strong smell of gas.
They also said that they cleaned the Mass Airflow Sensor but this might
be the next thing to change.  Has anyone had this problem before?
