Hot Start Problem

Just to progress this - I used the (as usual) helpful advice from the
list and checked the fuel pressure accumulator.  On mine, it's a tiny
screw at the back.  No fuel leakage, wire tested depth at 54mm.  I
think I recall seeing 90-odd mm as ideal, but my device is only 78mm
long.  Not part of the problem, I think.

I have an 'instant fix' for the failure to start, by running the ECU
diagnostics to step two (fuel pump _and_ fuel frequency valve working).

Run this for ten seconds, and the car starts instantly.
