Nothing hit the window.  Once it was an 80 degree day with car parked in the

Has your car been in an accident? If the body has been bent some that could be a possible explanation or it may be that there is a sharp metal bump of some kind in the channel where the window glass rests. Have the glass shop carefully clean out the channel and look for problem areas and also have them check the fit carefully.
