On this one, I'm thinking "feature" because if you were sitting in the car
with your fob in your purse, the doors would unlock at the touch of a hand,
anyone's hand, hence the need to use a key when the door is locked from the
inside.  OK, I'm just guessing here.  :-)

I don't remember whether I had locked the car from the inside.
  It happened again tonight.  Later, I made point of not using
the button on the inside, so I'll see....

BTW, my windows got really fogged up tonight.  It is quite
humid out, and most of the fogging was on the outside.  The
windshield wiper did not cope with this well....  :-(

I tested my theory about locking the door from the inside and, much as I
hate to admit it, I was wrong about that.  I'm not sure about the fob
interference either since I recall holding the fob to the window before
giving up and using the key.

Well, that's sort-of too bad.  I'd like to have some logical
answer.  I guess, as I said, I will start a list.  These are
either problems with the car or problems with ME.

I was thinking that morning that both times, I tried to open
the door from the passenger side.  I THINK the first time, I
then walked over to the driver's door and tried again, before
I got out the fob and clicked it open.

I have manually locked the car from the inside a couple of
times, so that theory sounded plausible.  Oh well.

Any metallic objects (keys, coins, cell phone, et cetera) near the fob
inside a purse or pocket can interfere with its operation.
