The hydraulic pressure accumulator (bomb) stores pressure in case the engine stalls/throws a belt; without stored pressure, you've lost your brake assist.  Dangerous.
Which light is on, the handbrake warning light?  That is also triggered by low brake fluid, as well as low system pressure.  Does that light come on and stay on for a bit after every start?  That is the system building up enough pressure to trip the switch...

<< Hi Dale,  
My wagon has been doing the same for about 85000 miles. At first I freaked,   
but I checked everything out and like with your car all systems were fine.   
Most importantly I have never had a problem stopping.
