Intermittent non starting

Hi, living in Gran Canria I have limited resources so I am hoping someone can help me. My 2000 Megane 1.9 Diesel has been fine until a few months ago it developed an intermittent (maybe 1 or 2 times a month) habit of not starting. The engine turns over, but does not fire. If left for an hour, the car will start normally. The fuel pump seems to be working and it had a new fuel distribution system last year. The Main dealer wants to replace the injection pump (expensive) This doesn't make sense to me - surely if it was faulty this would show up while driving? Another garage says that the immobilizer and keys need reprogramming - again surely digital circuits usually work - or not. Any comments / suggestions welcome.
Currently in tonygc's garage:
