RPM Drops off suddnely when I clutch in

I've had an issue recently with my 2007 328i (stock) where when approaching a stop the Engine will suddenly drop in RPM and then go back up to idle speed when I clutch in. Example:

Slowing to stoplight in fourth. When RPM reaches 1500, I clutch in, RPM drops to 500, then increase immediately to 800-1000 (standard idle).

I wouldn't worry much except the other day it actually killed the engine. I have no warning lights on. At first I thought maybe the clutch was dragging a bit but the more I notice the issue, the less I think that's the problem. It seems to be more prevalent when the engine is warm. Any ideas?
