stalling at idle

Volvo MD2040c stalls at idle speed 1000 rpm when left there a few minutes.
Starts normally, runs at normal cruising speeds but when I come in to dock, need to idle to reduce speed, need to shift to reverse etc the engine stalls.

I have changed the primary and secondary fuel filters, had my fuel polished and the tank cleaned. There was a lot of sediment. This did not fix it.

Any suggestions for a next step? I searched Nigel Calders book but did not see this as one of the things on the troubleshooting chart.
