2001 SE shuts off when warm?

I have a problem with my 2001 SE. I drove my lude home on the highway and stopped for fuel, and after I filled the tank my car wouldn't start at all. It turns over just fine, but no start. I got a boost when it was cold (sitting in the parking lot at -30c) and it fired up and I was able to drive it the 2 blocks home. I put a new battery in it yesterday and put a tester on it, the battery is fine and the alternator is charging it as well. It started, and I went inside the house to let it warm up and when I came back out 10 minutes later it wasn't running and again would not start. What do you guys think?

I've read about the ignition switch recall, but says this:
On certain passenger vehicles, the interlock operation of the ignition switch may not function properly, making it possible to turn the ignition key to the "off" position and remove the key without shifting the transmission to park.

Consequence: If the driver does not shift to park before removing the key and fails to engage the parking brake, the vehicle could roll and a crash could occur.

Fix: Dealers will perform an inspection procedure that confirms interlock function. Vehicles will be updated with a redesigned interlock lever free of charge. The recall began on March 7, 2005. Owners may contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009 or Acura at 1-800-382-2238.

For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #05V025000

This doesn't seem to be the problem I am having. Anybody have any ideas?

Re: 2001 SE shuts off when warm?

Forgot to mention that my car is a 5 speed. I've been told it could be some ignition problem or something as simple as a fuel filter (which I haven't changed in awhile...). I'm just wondering if anyone has had this specific issue before? I haven't the time right now to check all of the previous posts, I'm just sneaking onto the computer at work right now :). Thanks for reading this anyway.
