when you push the clutch pedal down you disengage the input shaft of the transmission, so you are reducing the load on the engine (it's not spinning anything in the trans now). This is going to allow the revs to climb a little bit, especially when your idle is so high it must be doing a cold start thing wtih the thermowax or aws solenoid at that time still... so the BACV isnt regulating things like it does when the idle is @ 750 and nothing else is affecting it, in that situation the BACV should correct for the varying loads like pushin down clutch pedal or turning on the defroster etc.
