good call getting it to the dealer, let us know what they find.
I knew it was normal, but I had never paid any attention to how high the temperature got when I shut the engine down with the 142 degree stat. When I used the 160 degree stat and had the problem restarting, I noticed that the temperature had gotten up to 175. I guess at about 30 degrees above normal operating temperature it won't allow it to restart.
