Velux locking mechanism - locks up in open position

I have come across a couple of velux windows where the locking bar opens easily, but then seems to lock up in the open position. The fault seems to be in the mechanism itself and having taken one apart the fault still isnt obvious (to me at least) anyone help?

Funny enough I have just changed one with a similar fault, I found the fault was with the locking pegs, the one I had were bent but changing it and lubrication around the locking gear worked a treat.
