Fellas, if I understood you correctly, what I think you're describing is clutch disc stick. Meaning, if the clutch sat engaged for some, even a relatively short, period of time, on some vehicles one side of the disc facing sticks to the flywheel surface, even though the pressure plate has moved off the disc. Usually it happens if there's excessive friction between the input shaft spline and the clutch disc hub (for whatever reason). Once you engage a gear with the shift lever the transmitted torque should jolt the system and shake the disc off the flywheel into its free position. Often this is the result of an overly tight fit between the disc hub and the input shaft spline and in addition possibly due to some driveline mislalignment. The tight fit is generally chosen to reduce the lash between the two parts and limit the driveline snatch during parking lot maneuvers and generally reduce driveline noises at low torque conditions. Still, should not be happening though.
If I misunderstood the condition you're experiencing, my apologies.
