I drove to the gas station this morning with a door ajar indicated until I was able to use their antifreeze and wiper to soak the rail until the window moved.
A very easy solution to this is, as you park the car in the evening, you roll the window down 1/4" or so. Just enough to clear the frame, but not enough to move the window out of contact with the seal. I do this whenever there's a threat of a freeze, and it works like a charm. If I remember....
