This issue has stumped my local dealership, we have even had a "flight recorder" hooked up for weeks without recording a significant code or other data that relates to this. Here are the circumstances under which the stall occurs:

Warmer weather, has not occurred since cold weather arrived last fall (except for one warm day in November);
Stall occurs when slowing to a stop or for a slow turn;
Almost always happens on the first drive of the day, does not repeat no matter what sort of driving is done the rest of the day;
Must have driven about 4-5 miles at cruising speeds of 50 or so;
Typically, there is an idiot light warning that the FCW (forward collision warning) system is not functional.
The engine can be restarted immediately.
This will NOT happen if in "tow-haul" mode.

This is a different problem from the classic deacceleration stalling that can be corrected with the recall fix of the TIPM.

What type of ignition do you have? Proximity key? Key fob? I've seen this with Durango's with key fobs that insert into the blue tooth ignition system. Ware and tare cause a disconnect in the key to ignition which in turn results in a stall situation. When you move the key, it reconnects, and all is well.
