When I first read it, I thought "rolling start" was referring to an ignition on, clutch engagement, engine start. If it's a full stop, I'd go to neutral and use the brakes, then re-engage the clutch after the stop and proceed. If you are merely slowing down to a crawl, not stopping, but then want to accelerate, then going to first is a delicate decision based on your own experiences with your own car, one in which road conditions such as incline will have an impact on as well. Going to first is not a problem but clearly it has to be accomplished at extremely slow crawls to avoid synchronizer damage, when it doubt slower is better.
