Dies after hot start repeatedly

I'll be curious to see what you come up with as I have the same problem on
my car. I wound up just changing the check valve a couple of months ago,
but still running the original pump.
I have noticed it only happens for me on a hot car and a hot day, and the
car will only start, and stay started when this happens when I have my foot
on the gas. I know good check valve, no leaks from bpv or hoseing, and
don't think ISV because only happens from hot start.
It was real funny a while ago watching a valet try to get my car out of the
parking garage on a hot day...I have to use heel/toeing to keep the car
alive in these situations...pretty sure he didn't get that merit badge yet.

I'm having this problem again some days, some not (TODAY!!*#%^).
It idles fine after I hold it above idle with the pedal for about
30-60 seconds after a hot start. Until then, dies repeatedly if
I let off the pedal long enough for it to return to idle.
I replaced the fuel pump a year or so ago with the smaller-diameter
dealer model (VDO?) with (assumedly) the built-in pressure valve.
Could this symptom be due to something other than that valve dying?
Has anyone with their newer style pump had this happen?
