Clutch has a life of its own??

I have been having an issue with my clutch, perhaps you guys have some thoughts on whats going on.

As the car is cold everything works fine. it shifts smooth, and slides right into gear.

The issue is when the car gets up to operating temperatures. The clutch pedal feels the same as when the car is cold, but for some reason it is not pulling the pressure plate all the way off the clutch disk. I can feel the pressure plate-clutch disk-flywheel catching. This weekend I got stuck in traffic and the car got hotter than usual (not into the red) and I couldn't even get the car into gear. I had to roll it to a bar, and drink a few beers while she cooled down. once cold I got right back in, and everything was fine.

I have readjusted the clutch about 5 times, and it hasn't changed anything.

I thought it could be the omega spring, but wouldn't that make the pedal feel different?

Thanks for any thoughts and opinions!
