Question about 1984 Volkswagen Rabbit
I believe it is a vacuum leak. I have replaced all the hoses from the vacuum advance up to the TB. Still surges when warmed up and will stall unless I keep my foot on gas a little.
You are right it is a air leak but either at the intake gasket or tb gasket seeing you replaced the hoses already. spray some carb cleaner around those areas while running and see if idle changes this will pin point the area of trouble. make sure you dont have any spark plug wires arcing out cause this could ignite the carb cleaner.

Testimonial: "I believe my CIS needs adjusting, the engine was checked thoroughly for vacuum leaks. We came out to Denver recently from North Carolina in the Rabbit. I believe the altitude has something to do with it. Thanks for your input though, believe me if there is anything else I will be back to ask another question!"
