I've had similar symptoms cured by changing the temperature sender.

Theory was the sender was telling the ECU the engine was warming up quicker than it really was, so the ECU then leaned out the fuel mixture too soon and caused 'a fit of the wickers' for about a mile or so, about a minute after first starting the engine.

First thing the garage changed was the coil pack - "Coz it's always the coil pack on Renaults"- but that made no noticable difference
Currently in TicklyT's garage:
'99V Kangoo 1.4 wheelchair carrier, '89 Volvo 740, '07 Corsa van (but only for work)
