When you find out what to do for this, call me!  My 4KS has been doing 
this intermittently for about 3 years or so.  It does it about every 6 
months or so.

The only thing that I can find that helps it is to tighten the cable a 
bit.  Under the hood, move the little retaining clip on the cable end at 
the throttle body up a few notches.  This tightens the cable, and seems 
to help a bit.
