I am at a loss as to understand the rationale behind this "fix". I really would appreciate an explanation for this so that I can go back to the Subaru specialists and explain it to them and hopefully come up with a permanent fix for it.

The only diodes I know of that he may be talking about are the rectifryers in the alternator.

Thanks once again
I doubt that this problem is due to a diode. Doing a power fail reset type action like that is not normally associated as a fix for a diode problem. Diodes either work or they are bad. Electrolytic capacitors are more prone to that kind of fix, or a microprocessor circuit. These type of components and circuits will be found in the ECU. I would try changing that first to see if that helps. Since they are expensive you might want to try finding a used one from a salvage yard.
