Cold engine Whining?

Does anyone living in a cold environment hear a whining coming from up front when you start your car in the morning? When my engine is cold soaked, it makes a whining noise, as soon as it is warm, it goes away. I took it to the shop. They replaced the power steering pump, and it still does it. So I just took it back today. I think it is just a tensioner or an idler pully, but I cant pin it down. Its pretty loud though.

No, still stock.
it only does it for about a minute
Im glad mine isnt the only one. The dealership said that they havent seen it before though, so I went ahead and took it in. If they deem that it is not important, I will let yall know. Thanks.
Well I just got a call from the dealership, and they said that it is the Idler pulley. We did start two other new GTs this morning and they didnt do what mine did. So if that is indeed the problem, then you who have the same thing might want to have it changed too. I will let you know if it still does it. It will be a couple days till they get the part, so I will let you know then. Until then I am stuck driving this gay fusion, loaner car. I MISS my Mustang!!!
Well they changed an ilder pully and the sound is gone. So if yours is doing it then you might want to take it in.
All under warranty still.
