Well I still say it is most likely a bad injector seating issue.

So what you have is fuel pressure leaking off from the system when turned off hot, while at the same time causing a flooded engine condition.

If you let it sit for a short time 5-10 minutes, it has not leaked off enough fuel yet to cause flooding & you still have some pressure, so it starts.

You let it sit for say 20-30 minutes, & enough fuel has leaked that you have zero pressure + a flooded engine, so you crank & crank till it's clear & you have fuel pressure, then it starts.

This does not show up as a symtom when cold either, because the leaked fuel has evaporated & the cold start valve blasts enough fuel in the get it fired up while the pumps come up to pressure.

my .02 cents worth
