Get more aggressive with the starts and it may be less likely to happen.

If its clutch stutter, try blowing out the clutch with compressed air. It really does help. Also, how many miles? If its engine stall, it could be a dirty spark plug or dirty fuel system. New plug is easy or try some Seafoam in the gas. Doesn't sound serious.

If it happens at all speeds then it could be a loose/faulty spark plug cap or a badly grounded CDI.
