You will find the problem is being caused by the door being out of line, over time the weight of the door causes it to drop at the latch end loosen the hinge bolts then jack it up a little and retighten then this issue dissapears

Philip Nguyen says:

On the new replacement handles a bushing can be seen on the link to the locking mechanism which was your first thought where you packed it. It appears to be a clear plastic bushing.
Perhaps when you reinstalled it, it moved the mechanism closer to the rod allowing it to disengage.
