Idle no longer works after a stall-out. Need advise.

I have a 98 4-door Standard-trans Rav4. It has run like a champ since I got it in 98. A few days ago, I came to a stop and forgot to push in the clutch. It stalled out, but I was in the parking spot, so I just turned it off, and left it where it was. I came back a few hours later and now when it starts, it will immediately stall out unless I keep my foot on the gas.

I got it moving, and took it out on the highway for an hour or so. As long as its in gear and moving, it is fine to let off on the gas. But if I push the clutch in, and let off the gas, it will not idle, it will just stall out. This is really annoying. 2 days later, it is still doing it. Anyone have any ideas what could be causing this? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
