Or maybe while going over a railroad crossing or similar bumps. Thinking you have to knock the change/crap loose in there (upward) to provide the space needed for the release to happen.
Worst case scenario you could take that whole assembly out (a few screws, 12v socket power connector and button connectors if I recall) and shake it/turn upside down while trying to open.
