Engine dies if the clutch is released too fast

If I let go of the clutch about an inch short of fully releasing it, which is how far I have to let it go in order to move the vehicle at all, let the vehicle move forward slowly for five seconds or so, then I can fully release the clutch without the engine dying and speed up. But if I let it go all the way, before moving at all, the engine dies.

The model is all the way back from 2002, it's been sitting a while, and all I've done so far is put in fresh fuel with Stabil and Seafoam, change out the oil, change out the battery, and adjusted the clutch. I've been told it I might need to either clean out the carbs or change the spark plugs, which I'll do eventually anyway. Just wondering what you guys think.
