Hopefully it wouldn't get past the next latch detent, but what I think you need to do is to get a Torx 40 bit and loosen off the striker pin, then adjust it outwards so that the door is a little less tightly closed. Paradoxically enough, I think that will ensure the door is held more securely, as the latch fingers will close properly all the way.
If your luck is like mine, the striker pin will flop everywhere as you try to adjust it - perhaps pencil around its original position and also eye it up vertically to make sure it's meeting the door latch centrally.
