'02 Focus LX often won't start when warm

I first started having a problem on long trips when I stopped for a break. The car would not start -- not even crank -- until I waited 30-60 minutes. This now happens rather "reliably."

Today it happened locally after I drove about 10 miles. I had to wait an hour.

Everything lights on the dash as usual, but no cranking.

Playing with the steering wheel position or shifting to neutral or neutral-and-back don't help.

Candidates?
