The idle sounds like a idle control valve (more commonly referred to as ICV); sounds like it could need a good cleaning.
As for the oil light ... 20 seconds seems an awful long time for it to go out. Are you absolutely positive you're not running low on oil? If the answer is no, I'm gonna go ahead and suspect that your oil is too thick for the temperatures and it's causing a low pressure condition on startup.
