Question Acceleration on cold start with foot off of gas

I recently purchased a 330xi and I have noticed that when the car starts cold, it will accelerate even if my foot is off the accelerator and lightly on the brake. BMW says this is normal and I should just wait 45-60 seconds for the car to warm up. At this price point, that answer does not seem reasonable. The dealership I had my car serviced at said it was able to reproduce the same effect on other 3 series xis. My tech called me today and told me that BMW has three complaints on this issue that it is working to resolve. Does anyone else experience this problem? If so, have you taken the car in for service and how did the service department respond? Thanks for any input.
