Depending on the type of capacitors inside, they do contain a liquid
that makes them function. I'm not sure if it can freeze or how
temperature effects it but the flash may function but perhaps the
capacitors wouldn't take enough charge to fire the flash. Of course
the last thought is, perhaps the flash had a slight buildup of
condensation inside which caused it to temporary short out the high
voltage circuits.

Yes, frozen condensation may be the explanation. I forced myself (oh! the suffering) to read the manual cover to cover twice but couldn't find anything mentioned about operating temperature limits and the like. I thought for a pro flash like this at least they would include something in the specs.
