not sure if this is any good but when i needed to unlock the boot of my megane from the inside there was a little swithch on the locking mechanism thats attached to the carnot the boot lid, flipped that up and the boot opened.

but like i said thats for a 1999 megane, but it should be similar for your clio

Could be a lazy or duff solenoid motor in the boot lock. You'll need to remove the inner liner for a looksee

On mine it was the lock motor but you cant get a motor
only from Renault the complete lock is about 40, you can unlock it from in the car but as far as I know not lock it, there was another thread on here a few weeks back about the same thing.

Who would design a vehicle that falls over when you stop?

If you find a fix for your problem please let us know it will help others.
