Driver window problems. Question?

Developed a problem with my drivers window today. It won't express up anymore. As you all know there are two up detents. Pull up to the first one and hold to move window up........nothing on mine now. Pull up to the second detent and release and the window should go all the up. That is assuming all the parameters are met like door closed, nothing resisting window, yada yada yada.... Now I have to hold in the second detent to move the window up.

Anybody seen this before. Should I fear that it stops working completely before I have the chance to get it to service or do you think its safe to lower the driver window as much as I like? I wouldn't like to have the window stuck down...........the horror, and me 480 miles from home.

oh and another thing. if you put the key in the door lock and hold in the lock position all the windows are supposed to close. All mine do except for the drivers door.
