I recently squirted some powdered graphite (cheap & easy @ autoparts
stores) into a few locks around here.  Noticed much easier key operation
at first but it seems to have faded a bit.  Hard to tell...

I don't think this will help the freeze up, though.  Try keeping them
dry and keeping them warm?  I often won't lock my door if conditions are
weird, just in case.  

You should try cleaning and lubing your trunk lock mechanism.  Clean
with WD-40 or whatever, lube with lithium I guess.  Any better ideas?
