No this is not a joke.

The Op said his door mech was frozen shut, not his window. Since many of our cars are programmed to roll the windows down simply by pressing/holding the unlock key it will not damage anything. It is certainly worth a try and has actually worked for me in the past......But I am sure you are an expert so why listen to someone from Minnesota.

If the glazing panel is frozen into place and you keep on commanding the car to roll down the window, the window regulator inside the door is made of a spindly cable and plastic parts which will break. As it is, BMW window regulators are not the model of toughness.
