The ghost in the Mini

Was just going out in my Wife's car earlier and checked my Mini through the window before leaving. To my alarm, I discovered both the driver and passenger windows fully down. Thank goodness it wasn't raining (for a change) or the car would have been full of water. I didn't have the "key" with me but the car wasn't even locked.

I had to get the key to close the windows and remembering something I saw on a VW Jetta commercial, tried holding down the unlock button and to my surprise, shortly after the doors unlocked, both windows rolled down. "Feature" I assumed but how did it happen when the key was on the dresser?

Ideas anyone?

The manual doesn't even mention this as something the key can do. It only happens if you hold the button down for a long time... Or if the ghost decides to play tricks on you.
It hasn't happened again since, the only thing I can think is maybe I did it after the previous use and didn't notice until then. We have had about 3 days without rain so it wasn't wet inside. If I lived in Surrey, BC a family of hobos would have moved into it within an hour.
Mine seems to lower interest he radio volume each time I shut the car down. I listen to work related recordings of meetings while I drive and the volume has to be high to hear them. Each time I start the car, it seems like the volume has gone back to the middle. Maybe my ghost is worried about my hearing? Nice ghost.
