Default Very cold weather Clutch issue

This may have been covered here before but I couldn't find the thread. I have a 2004 WRX. When I am in weather below say 25 degrees, and the car sits for a few hours, the clutch goes soft and the car doesn't shift into gear correctly and the clutch feels weird until about 15-30 minutes of warm up time. This is the only manual trans car I have driven with this problem. Is this common to cold weather Subaru's or do I have a correctable issue? The trans shifts funny too in cold weather but that's understandable...I need synthetic.

I have noticed this with my STi swap. When its cold out I have way too much free play, but when its warm all is good. I dont know what causes it. Bleeding the system couldnt hurt.

i experimented with 'double clutching' on upshifts. basically clutching in, shifting to neutral, releasing clutch, depressing clutch again, shifting up a gear, and releasing clutch. no where in there do i blip the throttle. i find it finds gear a lot smoother from 1-2 and from 2-3.

I think it's more along the line of the clutch pressure not being high enough in the cold. I wonder if different fluid would help?

when its cold out <40, i can't downshift into 2nd gear w/o double clutching for at least 20 mins of driving. The shifter feeling funny is normal, it actully feels better for me because the shifter won't grind. When it gets real cold ( - 10) the shifter is like an ice block and barely moves, then turn the car on and it sounds like its going to explod... scary...
