Not sure about your boot but my drivers door does the same thing. Mine is caused by a faulty drivers door locking module which doesn't recognise that the door is open, therefore doesn't show on the illuminated dashboard, and as such automatically locks the door after a set time.

Perhaps your boot has a faulty lock module too. I will add that my car is the estate. The module can usually be repaired as it is often a broken solder joint on a microswitch/circuitboard caused by constant slamming of the door/boot etc.

To stop my car locking with the keys in I also open/close any other door as well. This then 'registers' that the car has been unlocked and doesn't attempt to re-lock it with your keys in. At least it gives you time to get it fixed.
