Windows drop: First 159 problem

Nearly 6 month into 159 ownership with very little in
the way of problems (creaky windscreen, not been back to the dealer once) and now
it appears I have the random window drop feature.

2nd time now. (First time it rained.)

Weird because first time the sunroof opened, along with all
for windows. This time the sunroof stayed in the fully tilt position,
how I left it.

How hum.

Is it the old problem of the fob getting a 'long press' while it's in your pocket?

Lock car up. Key into pocket. Go into house. Sit down. Fob gets pressed accidentally. Doors open/windows down/boot open.

Not if the sunroof stays in the fully tilted position, I don't think.

Sunroof would close from the tilted position and then slide-open also open if that was the case.

Weird... I thought they fixed this. There were quite a few reports about this problem, but they all were with series 0 models (pre 2008).
