Driver's door "rebounds" open.

My 97 laguna has developed an annoying habit that when I close the driver's door any bit hard it rebounds open. If I do it gently its fine.

The funny thing is its only happened since I oiled the hinges, locks etc. I presume something is worn in the catch and oiling it has made it worse.

Any ideas on what to do?

Currently in renofan's garage:
1997 Laguna 1.8 8v RT Sport. Black. V6 Leather Interior. Wood Trim on Dash. Monroe Gas "Reflex" Shocks. Sport Springs. Sparco Strut Brace. Team Dynamics Sword Alloys. 6 Disc CD Changer. Tow Bar. Crystal side repeaters. Currently 183,000 miles done. Airflow spoiler, new '00 model headlights, backlights and DRLs waiting to be fitted....
