85 Ford Escort

I have 85 Ford Escort (Automatic) car with 126,000 miles on it.  The timing
belt was changed after 75,000 miles.  The car runs good and never gave any
problem to start.  Also Fuel pump and Fuel Filter was changed recently.

For last several weeks, the car cuts the engine off whenever it comes to rest
after applying breaks.  (for example at stop sign or red light etc.)  To
avoid this, I usually slow down, and press the gas pedal very little so that
the idle will stay high and the car will not move further.  This problem
becomes severe in cold weather (40 degrees and below).  

Is it because of thermostat or timing belt or else ?

Thanks for any suggestion/advice in advance.
