It is logical conclusion and this corroded contact could be bad for short lift/drop and not too bad for longer lift/drop of windows.

It is logical too... Skewed door causes skewing of window support and friction between window and guide elements could be enough for trouble.

Maybe I should to mention one more thing: my problems started after machine polishing of my GT in local workshop. Maybe vibrations caused by polish machine were source of disalignment of window in guides?
