    Not likely, more chance it is just the engine stalling at low revs
    However, there shouldn't be any reason to apply both foot brake and accelerator at the same time; I'm sure I've tried it before and not had any such issue

    Its just the ecu reducing the fuel to allow it to 'tick over' and help save fuel.

    Pretty much all diesels do it.

    Probably as you're doing two things which counteract each other. It's probably not doing the brakes any favours if the power wasn't reduced.

    Iirc it's to save fuel, so when braking its only using minimal fuel.
