Can you post a couple of pics ? Both with the door closed and open.
I think the method of correcting this is going to depend on where the deformation point is. Is it in a single point or along the full length of the window frame(curved) ?

it starts just a few inches up the frame itself and the top of the frame is about 1/2" to 1" away from the jam.

I just installed a set of glass doors last night and one door had the same problem i used a set of light weights and a heat lamp and the window frame moved rite where it had to go. mine needed to move about 3/8 of a inch worked perfect. Hope it helps
