driver door handle

hi, i have a 2002 focus 5 door hatch,
i recently had to replace the driver door lock mech and central lock mech
as the lock mech broke meaning driver door could only be opened from inside car,
now the lock works in locking unlocking and opens from outside but to open the driver door i have to pull the handle twice, i had to do this before the last lock broke,
can anyone shed some light on this, is it some sort of safety feature ,seems strange that you have to pull the handle let it go then pull it again to open the door after the car has been locked but once the door has been opened only have to pull handle once to open the door.
all other doors work fine so its just the driver door this happens to.
many thanks for any help or advice.
