Engine lugging in gear at idle with A/C on

This is a '99 9-5 wagon 4-cyl turbo. The idle speed doesn't seem to increase when the A/C is turned on. Consequently, when in gear with the A/C on, the engine lugs and makes a struggling sound. Kick up the speed and the lugging goes away. I'm told this is common with this model year and that if the idle speed is turned up the computer will kick out a code. Sounds like BS to me, but what do I know. Is there a way to increase the idle speed, or is something wrong that the idle speed doesn't increase automatically?

Thanks
