Idle problem

Hi!

I have had idle problems with my -77 930. Idle have been around 2000rpm. Today I found that the hose running from engine to brakebooster was broken in two. I figured this must be the problem så I plugged the end running to the engine just to see if this was the problem. When I started the car it was still running 2000rpm so I turned the car off. I left for lunch and when I came back I started the car again. This time with a nice 900rpm idle. I took the car for a drive and everything seems to be ok.
Just to verify that this realy was the problem I removed the plug while engine was running. I was expecting the idle to rise to 2000rpm again, but instead it started to run very bad ( no rpm increase to mention and it was kind of shooting flames or someting). Once the plug was back it runnes smooth and 900rpm.

Was this the problem or have the car fixed it self?
