Electronic Gremlins in Toyotas?

The Detroit Free Press is reporting that Toyota is considering a fix to the 2005-2007 Toyota Corolla and Matrix for engine stalling problems due to a problem in the electronics.  Apparently, there are several tens of complaints about the stalling problem.  I don’t mean to be snide, but I wonder why this is not  ‘reverse pedal mis-application’ where people meaning to press the gas pedal end up pressing the brake!   There have been several hundreds of complaints about sudden unintended acceleration and every such driver is accused of pressing the gas pedal when the brake pedal was intended.   There is certainly more to come on this story…
