My 09 Forester X 5-speed does the exact same thing. It doesn't settle down to idle until the vehicle stops. It's impossible to modulate between on throttle and off throttle smoothly between about 2000 to 2500 rpm.
I hate the dealership where I bought it and had it serviced for the first 40k mi. I'll take it to the other dealership in town next service and see what they say.
P.S. It doesn't do it when the engine is warm but not yet up to full temp. Maybe a colder thermostat would help?
Wish Subaru would publish something so I would know for sure.
