I don't have any insight for you, but can nod my head in enthusiastic agreement. I had persistent ITB issues all last summer (knee more than hip) during my marathon training that caused me endless grief. But, whenever I got to travel to NYC for work and my runs moved from pancake-flat Houston to the hills of Central Park the issues evaporated and I could run seemingly forever without problems. Then, as soon as I got home to Houston they came back.

I did all the usual therapies -- resistance training with those giant rubber bands, foam rollers, leg-over-leg stretches. Anything anyone suggested on the forums or youtube. I have no clue what, if anything, actually "fixed my glitch," though. Eventually I just stopped having problems and it's been smooth running ever since.
