I've experienced a similar issue with my X3 several times but without "acceleration". I'll come to a complete stop, foot only on the brake, only to have the car unexpectedly leap forward a foot or two requiring me to stomp it. I think it is due to applying just enough pressure to stop the car but not enough to hold it back. Now I brake firmly and it seems to prevent "slippage" from occuring. Still not sure if it is a change in idle or brake pressure that causes the unexpected surge. Definitely scared me at intersections.
