I'd say water in the central locking solenoid in the drivers door.
Would I be guessing right that it usually happens in cold or wet weather?
Water gets between the window and the window seals.

[color=#0000ff][size=5][font=comic sans ms,cursive]I had exactly the same problem on my previous car, a 1999 Mondeo Ghia X, I put it down to water getting in as Stoney said, it got worse over the months until I had to use the key to lock each individual door; Water also got into other electrical bits and all sorts of things started to go belly up, it was time to get rid of it quick, now driving a 2008 Focus Estate Titanium 1.8 petrol, love the new car.[/font][/size][/color]

I would put my money on it being a dodgey drivers door lock motor, as had exactly same problem. After i changed the drivers door lock motor all now works perfect
