indeed it does sound like a barrel fault. remove the steering console and check there are no loose connections on the barrel. also, have you had the radio changed recently?
any problem like this can be put down to any componant that has a perminant and switched live through it shorting, thus giving power to the car constantly. if the engine dies when you remove the wire from the barrel, its the barrel, if it stays on, its most likely to be caused by the radio....remove the switched live off this....and so on!
