Possibly a fuel filter becoming clogged. It might be starving for fuel. When you try to accelerate it may not get enough fuel through the lines to the engine because of the clog. When you shift, you push the clutch in, the engine revs down, when it engages again it requires more fuel. Makes sense to me that its the fuel filter.

I would also recommend checking your distributor. my civic had a problem similar to that which it was bogging out and misfiring when accelerating, I tried everything I could possibly think of...fuses, spark plugs+wires, fuel filter, TPS, idle air control, map sensors, loose grounds...lastly I found out that the brand new distributor I bought 4 months ago went bad.
