I had a Rabbit that would easily start with the slightest roll, but never with cranking of the starter.  I found that I could even get the car rolling with the starter, then pop the clutch once in motion and the engine would come to life.  Turned-out that while cranking all power was shunted to the starter and the fuel stop solenoid clicked closed - but only while cranking.
I know your car is much more sophisticated, but I don't know.  I sometimes need to be reminded of the basics!
