Yes, it sounds like a classic overfill situation.
Also, the stalling may be related to the fuel overfill too. If I recall correctly (for the KGT), there is a charcoal canister that is connected by a vent hose to the fuel fill opening. If you put in WAY too much gas, that can flood the vent line and canister and cause some rough running. Some folks remove the canister.
However, without knowing the software level you are at, or the version of the intake air box and idle control valve you have - the stalling may be a whole other kettle of fish, one we KGT owners are too familiar with.
Try not to put so much fuel in.
