With your off guard theory I know what you mean, when in drive and going slow in second it sometimes feels as though it will stall so i have to knock it down manually..
I have the 17 Non DCT - 400 miles on it and the exact same scenario you describe. I rolled into the thankfully empty turn lane, stopped, hit the start and everything was fine. I'm only at 600 now but no new instances of this. Totally Ridiculous.....perhaps with all of this documented on the forums Honda will figure it out or prepare for their first huge lawsuit. Maybe I should have bought a 2500 dollar KLR650 so I could have reliability. I'm nervous as h3ll all the time now.

My one and only stall so far was at 8-9 miles too.

How long did you let it idle/warm up before riding it?

The reason I ask is I think when mine stalled, I let it idle/warm up for a much longer time than I have in the past. Actually heard it bog down while idling and blipped the throttle a couple of times while it was idling to try and get it to clear up.

I'm wondering if either of those or a combination could possibly be the source of the issue.

No real warm up; just start make sure all the lights go out, let it settle for 5 seconds or so then ride off in D taking it easy till the temp goes up. Then into S1 and traction control dependant on conditions.

I usually ride conservatively but this evening I opened it up and held the revs high to get evething nice and hot...no reoccurrence yet but tomorrow’s another day!

I have a 2016 DCT with a little over 1000 miles on it stall on me at a stop sign this week. I thought maybe it was because I switched to 87 octane fuel.

I've still only had the one stall at about 400 miles and I've only used 87 octane in it (I'm not sure there's any advantage to using the higher octane as long as the engine isn't pinging.)

Since the initial stall, I've been revving the engine slightly before starting off, similar to getting the revs up before letting out the clutch. So far, so good, but I'm only at 1300 miles now.

I seek to cure what's deep inside, frightened of this thing that I've become

Coming up on 3,000 miles and haven't had another stall. Wondering if it might be a bad gas kinda thing.

Stalled again today at a stop sign. Second time in two weeks. Is there any way to restart the engine while moving? It would suck to have to come to a complete stop on the highway to restart my engine.

Was everyone running a stop sign when theirs stalled? I was too. Maybe its an anti-stop sign running feature

Now running mine in Sport 2 mode to make sure it revs more before changing gear; also since using S2 the MPG has gone up to 61 mpg as apposed to 58 in D....

The one time it happened to me I was completely stopped at a light for about 20-30 seconds.

Even if I don't come to a complete stop at a stop sign, my DCT always shifts down to first gear before I start up again. In your case, could it be that you were still in 2nd gear when you started to go again?

I've come to realize that one of the disadvantages of the DCT is that I don't have complete control over the revs and clutch like I did with the standard transmission, and I have to adjust my riding style accordingly to prevent stalls and lurching at low speeds.
