Don't think so, Al.  The vac lines all come from a single vac/pressure line
at the vac pump.  (Under the rear seat in my car.)  A leaking driver's door
vac line will also be a leak at any other door and the entire system
shouldn't work.

I vote for the switch in the door lock being bad or loose or...  Anyway, it
sounds like an electrical problem in the driver's door region to me.  The
signal to run the pump isn't reaching the pump from that door switch for
some reason.
