[MSCW list] Remote door locks, etc.

Having gotten an offer I couldn't refuse, I recently parted with my beloved, but very basic  '91 Miata and stepped up to an '03 with all the bells and whistles then available.  The only problem I've noted with the new one relates to the remote door and trunk opener.  In short, when I open the trunk (regardless of whether I do it with the remote or with a key) then close it again, the security alarm goes off.  I've noticed that doesn't happen if I unlock the doors first, but the owner's manual says nothing to suggest that this should be the case.  Similarly, if I open the passenger's side door with the key, then close it, the alarm goes off.  I can't imagine that either of these events is by design.  Has anyone with a similarly equipped Miata observed this peculiar phenomenon?  Does anyone know whether it's designed in, or just an electronic gremlin in my car?  It's annoying -- probably more to the neighbors than to me -- but not serious since pressing any button on the remote silences the alarm.
