Have you swapped new rotors on just to make sure? (or swap from your other 
urq at least)  I don't have the orginal post but ISTR you being pretty sure 
about the rotors, but not _positve_...?????

Additional info:

Brakes bled by Bentley procedure.  New strut inserts, bearings in
February...pre Steamboat, no ill affects from Steamboat on return drive
to Orlando, or for several weeks after..

OK, then! The fact that this only happens once you've heated up the
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
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
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.
