Gear shift difficult when hot

I was in heavy traffic on the way home from work yesterday in my 147 and just before I got home, my gear leaver started to get stiff, as if the cables were sticking.
Today, when I drove it, changing gears was fine??
Can anyone think of a reason why the gear leaver mechanism would get stiff, say for example when the engine was hot, but then free up when it is cooler?

Odd you should say that, I'e had the same thing on a couple of occasions recently, couldn't select any gear then it started to free up felt very treacley then back to normal.

Weird but then the gear selection aint the best on the 147, sloppy very sloppy
