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

I've had this problem with mine since day 1 (2001 S4, Oct '00 build), and it
was never really resolved.  However, I noticed that when I changed to
synthetic oil last fall, AT MY OWN COST, the problem almost disappeared.
It's now gradually coming back, but not nearly as severe as it was.

IIRC, there were 4 other people who said they had the same problem:
    Jeff Dowley, Jay Bartlett, William Safford & Anshuman
Did you guys find any solution?  Anyone else?

2001 S4, still all stock <sigh>
