Scenic Diesel Intermittenent Starting Problem

Hi there.. can anyone help with my unusual problem..

I have a 2000 Scenic 1.9 tdi sport which has suddenenly started to fail to start. There seems to be no obivious reason for this as it will start normally the one day and then the following morning it will just turn over with no attempt to fire. Ive had Green Flag out twice to no avail and towed to my local garage where they have checked it over... but each time it has just started on 1st turn of the key!!.
The only difference i can see when this happens is that the glow plug dash indicator light goes out within 2 seconds when it is not gonna start... otherwise it takes about 10 to 20 depending on temp...
anyone any idea whats gonig on??
Currently in Nostromo1956's garage:
2000 Megane scenic 1.9 Tdi sport
