I wouldn't say that the park assist should have any bearing on the acceleration issue. The system is not designed to have any impact on the vehicle's movement or controls.
Dirty sensors, or failure due to the nature of the parts, is a probable cause for the issue. However, having issues accelerating leads me to believe there is an issue somewhere else. Acceleration is typically altered by the ESP/TCS when it detects wheel slippage. I would test this by stopping the vehicle, holding the ESP OFF button until you hear it chime and see the notification on the EVIC, and then try to replicate the issue (with the park assist warning active).
If this seems to have solved the issue, at least you have a little more information. I have no clue what could cause this to happen, other than the computer or sensors acting up (which I can't imagine would be affected by a failure in the parking system - but you never know).
