I don't know the complete answer to this, but looking at the basics of electronics I'd say if the drivers side panel can control all windows, I'd say there is something wrong with the drivers panel. You mentioned you switched out "all switches". Switches just control the function of on or off, but there could still be something funky in the assembly itself as it connects all the switches. Either that or there is some type of relay somewhere in the middle that is between the drivers control panel and the rest of the windows. IF there is a relay or some mechanism somewhere in the middle, that may be at fault. That or replace the entire drivers side panel.
