Well, is his problem with the glow plugs not cycling,
or is it with the starter not spinning fast enough to
start the engine properly?

To the original poster:  How hot is "hot"?  Are you
talking operating temp, or close to that?  (EG, you
just ran into the grocery store for a few things after
a long drive.)

When it is hot, does the starter sound like it is
spinning more slowly?  From the post, that is what I
was thinking.

Sounds more like you've got a "hot start" problem. 
Sounds like you need to install a relay like we were
talking about last week.
