I know I'm jumping in here kind of late, but I would double check that the ignition relay is not sticking intemitently. Are you certain that you are getting fuel when it doesn't start? A check of the fuel pump relay wouldn't hurt either. Seems like I usually spend all sorts of time trouble shooting this kind of problem, only to finally discover that I have a failing relay or bad ground or something simple like that. Good Luck! Keith
Here is a quick low down on this problem for new viewers (at least as far as I understand it):
The problem with the car is that it won't start up in the 'start' mode, intermitantly. It does start and run ok doing a compression start so fuel delivery appears to be ok. We suspect that there is intermitant electrical connection problem either in the ignition switch, one of the green fusible links, fuse #20, ignition relay, or wiring to and from these points. All these items supply voltage to pin 18 of the ECU while the key is turned to the start position only.

I wanted to mention...... Check all of your fuses and make sure they have good contact. Any sign of rust or dirt should be cleaned out and if need be replace
the fuses. I've seen fuses do some weird things with Subarus.
"If everything starts to fail.. Check the fuses"!
