That same thing happened to me not too long ago. I took the lock apart and it looked fine and wasn't stuck. I noticed, however, that the gears weren't quite in range for it to work. (Its one of those things that's too hard to explain without showing you.) Anyways, I think its kinda like how they have the reset procedure to recalibrate the sunroof because after a while it gets out of whack. After a long time of accumulated errors it just isn't in the right place anymore. So I just played around with it to find where I thought the gears should be and put it back together. Its been probably 6 months and it hasn't happened since.
