[BiturboS4] more hesitation... after a cold start..

Alright, this issue is starting to annoy me.  I posted a while back
regarding hesitation in leisurly acceleration after the car has been
sitting overnight.  This problem was very minor at 18k miles and now at
28k miles has become quite annoying.    I am not sure if it is the change
in temperature between boston and San Antonio, TX (where i recently
relocated to), or a sign of age. My car is a 2001 S4, everything stock
(soon to change)

I know others have experienced this problem, but has anyone gotten it fixed?

The hesitataion is only during the first 10 mins of driving, and happens
under leisurly and exremely slow acceleration.   If i try to accelerate
vigorously (which i know is bad since the oil is not sufficiently warmed
up), the car bucks as it looses all power.

The problem has become fairly repeatable since i have moved to texas.  In
boston it was once or twice a month.  Now its every morning.

I do hope there is a cure for this..
