Funny sound at fast idle...

When I first start my Jeep (if it starts, see Starting Issues msg) it idles fast and when I put the clutch pedal it at that point I hear and interesting noise and I can't shift. First thing that jumps to mind is the throwout bearing. However if I tap the gas it drops down to a lower idle and everything works just fine. No sounds and I can shift. Any ideas on the issue???

Hey-Only thing I can think of is that when it is high idling the front splined shaft is hitting the 'worn' piolt bearing and it is not allowing the clutch to disenguage do to the warpage of the off center alignment of the clutch disk....?...and maybe your frontmain bearing in your tranny is worn too...?
