Same issue here... when you are braking hard the brake pedal is lower and so the gas pedal is reachable. It's pretty hard to do it properly if you are braking softly.

I sometimes come screeching into stoplights and such just so I can practice. Not that its a good idea...

You can also get pedal covers/replacement pedals that make the gas pedal much easier to reach.
