Heh.. Interesting stuff Jim, I never knew this was the case with W123s - Neat engineering! (And end-user engeering by you..!)

brewtoo - perhaps you can disable the trunk's's 'unlock and disable alarm' switch (unplugging the electrical connection, probably) and then try the door one(s) individually. This should be the easiest way to diagnose the problem, provided there is no system technicalities that make this un-feasable.
