OK, then! The fact that this only happens once you've heated up the brakes
makes me think you're on the right track.  Suggest a brake bleed while
you're at it and check to see if one wheel is appreciably warmer than the
other (sticky caliper when warm syndrome).

Other things you may want to check:
First.  Either swap the tires front to rear to rule wheels/tires out.
Second:  Check for wheel beearing play -- if you've got a lot of free play,
it may not be noisy, but may give you that symptom when braking.
Third:  I know you hate to hear this -- replace front strut bearings.
Fourth:  Worn strut inserts

At least those would be the areas I'd be looking at.
