[BiturboS4] Hesitation

What about a cold-only missing/hesitation?

I've seen this mentioned here: my 2001 (stock, 20k mi) misses during the
first drive-away only, when first started. By the second pull-away from a
stop it's smooth. This morning (60 degrees) it even faltered a bit at idle,
and recovered.

My dealer confirmed the problem at last service. They replaced the plugs,
cleaned the injectors, and changed the oil. No difference to me.
