I had something similar when I had a Laguna II.
Basically when its frosty and the handles ice over, and you pull on the handle to open the door, it wasnt going back to its normal postion after you let go of it. It was staying in the open / pulled position.
So when this happened and I tried to shut the door it would just "bounce" as you described and not shut / catch. The solution for me was to push the handle in from the outside and the door would then shut. Like you said, once the car had warmed up a bit then all was fine with the handle.
Maybe the same as what your experiencing ?
