Hydraulic clutch in your car, so a good possibility is that when you had your foot on the clutch, it actually was not disengaged 100% and some slight contact between the clutch and flywheel was happening. 45 seconds would have been plenty of time for the clutch plates to warm up and start smoking, so that is where I would lean.

Generally, it is ideal to reduce the amount of time your foot is pushing on the clutch pedal at idle. Either at a stop light or while warming up, this will increase wear on your release bearing, and can shorten the life of the clutch.
