erratic rpms off-idle

2001 Boxster S. Not sure if the following indicates a problem, but I thought it was somewhat odd.

When the car is stopped, out of gear, idling, and I just try to raise the idle a tad bit by stepping on the accelerator (leaving my foot there), the result is that the car revs slowly up to 1200 rpm, then comes down to 800, then revs up again etc.

Is this an artifact of the e-gas not knowing what to do with the throttle input? Or does this point to some other underlying problem? The car seems to run just fine.

Could somebody please try this out on their e-gas car and report on what happens? Thanks very much!
