When it was stalling more prominently would it stumble then stall or did it stall out right light someone turned off the ignition?
If it was stumbling and then stalled as soon as you put it in reverse I would probably think somehow the tranny was lugging down the engine causing it to stall. It's kinda like when a torque convertor locks up when in gear waiting at a light. I can't think of anything that's different when you put a tranny in drive compared to reverse, besides the actual internal of the tranny. (valves, clutches, gears, etc)
If it was stalling like someone turned off the key that might be something else, sensors, idle motor, something?
Now you're saying the stalling has stop after cleaning the TB and changing the fuel filter, but now you're getting idle fluctuation in reverse, neutral and drive. I assume you were not getting this idle fluctuation before, just the stalling problem. If that's the case I would concentrate more on the intake and idle control system. Clean the idle motor and EGR valve, make sure your TPS is adjusted properly, everything and anything.
