Is this at all times. Parked on a hill, level ground, etc etc?

Is this a change from how it used to behave or your first encounter with the car? Some of them have a bit of tug when put into gear, I wouldn't consider that a problem as it won't require you to step harder on the brake pedal, rather be a PITA to remember to control if used to other cars, and put more stress on transmission over time.

If you aren't parked on a semi-steep hill my guess would be the brake pedal lockout switch.

Hmm, kind of an old topic but we didn't hear if you got this fixed so...
