Default Warm start woes

I have a 2003 turbo that runs beautifully except for one problem: in hot weather if I go into a store for less than a half hour or so the car will not start for 15 to 30 minutes. The problem is intermittent. Two dealerships have failed to locate any problem. Any thoughts?

usually that is the first sign that the starter is taking a dump. my girlfriends car was doing that for six months. it got progressively more and more frequent until one day it just would not start.

Just to be clear, does the engine turn over at all? Or is it sluggish turning over?
