Subaru Brake Problem in Cold Weather

I have a 96 Legacy Outback, which I love (of course!)

One problem...when temperatures drop, my brakes seem to freeze up - the pedal is difficult to push down and only after warming up and pumping the brakes a lot will it "release" and the brakes will function normally.

Online research has yielded two solutions:

(a) brake fluid flush

(b) replace the check valve on the booster

Has anyone had a similar problem and, more importantly, had it fixed successfully?

Thanks much!
