I had this after I grenaded the PS pump. The theory was that debris was flushed into the steering box, clogging up one of the orifices that is used for turning on direction.

I flushed it repeatedly and it fixed it, but took 2 tries over several months. (and I am talking EXCESSIVE flushes, not a $129 dealer PS service special)
Keep it as simple as possible...but no simpler.
