Trouble upshifting into 2nd gear

This happens only on start up, problem ceases when it gets up to temp. Will downshift into 2nd fine. By "trouble" I mean grinding, sometimes it'll kick the shifter out of my hand. RPM's seem to stay high when the clutch is engaged. I have no other shifting problems, it'll hit the other gears just fine. As stated previous, problem goes away when she warms up.

Does this sound like a synchronizing issue? (Its on a 2000 4.0L 5 speed)
Fix? Time down? Cost?
