If it drops properly when the latch is released then it sounds like the regulator is probably OK. This means it's probably the switch in the door handle. Though I don't see how it would drop only a little bit.

Now that I think about it a bit more the amount of drop is different when the latch is released vs. when the handle is pulled so it might just be a bad regulator. The only way to tell either for sure is to open up the door and have a look.

Trygve has a great writeup on what's involved in doing a regulator replacement. The entire process took me about 3 hours as a DIY. You can read about my saga on replacing a window regulator if you are so inclined.
