I spoke with my service manager today.  He said that this should
not have happened.  The only way to lock all the doors and
trunk when the engine is running is with the key (which was in the
ignition).  Even though I can't duplicate the event, I plan to bring
the car in and have them check it out.  Since they will have to fix
the keylock rods etc., I hope they will pay for the side glass
replacement.  Wishful thinking...

I called Audi customer relations today.  Again they apologized and said
there are no other related complaints with RA.  I asked if they would pay
for the damage cause by the faulty remote.  They said no.  But if
RA was there, they would have reviewed the case.    HA!
