eventually OK for rest of the day.
OR
Car starts OK and is left to idle. after 3/4 minutes engine cuts out and reverts to above for starting sequence.

Is the problem more likely to occur when the gas tank is low or on curves (clover leaf or round-about) at speed? http://www.autosafety.org/article.php?scid7&did 7

The TSBs are for US cars only. They won't cover the TDCi. Plugged or dirty EGR valves on the TDCi have been a cause of rough running, so perhaps in an extreme case it could cause the stalling you are experiencing?
