While you are likely correct, as most of your posts have shown, I have to inquire...
You don't think that a temp sensor telling the computer that the engine is still cold could stall the engine at high temps?
First, it would prevent the computer from coming out of closed loop mode to use all of the other sensor values. Second, it would likely cause a rich mixture and potentially flood the motor.
I don't disagree with your suggestion, but why would a bad coil only cut out at high temps?
I might add that both would lead to the smell of unburned fuel.
