Default Low-rpm stumble with AC?

I've noticed that my Cruiser seems to stumble when I've got the air conditioning on and I'm rolling to a stop. I've also had problems getting the car to start quickly. Could this be related to oxygenated gas, or do I need to get my ECM checked out?

When I was in Daytona and had the air on, I stopped at an Eckerd's real quick. When I came out and went to start the car, I had to crank it 2-3 times before it would start. I have noticed one other time after running the AC that when I got back in and started the car that it seemed to stumble for the first few seconds after starting.Both of these instanceswere after driving a short distance with the AC on and then turning the car off briefly and then re-starting.

No explanation.

Thanks, it seems like mine does the same thing...I wonder if the PCM wasn't configured to handle the extra load of the AC under certain conditions.
