"Pull very hard. Did the same thing a few years ago. Have someone hold the key turned, and YANK. The fabric of the jacket is stuck in the latch. Mine was a nice London Fog microfiber, also very hard to rip. It escaped with a grease stain a few very small, barely noticeable thread pull on the arm."
I just got the trunk open. Well, as I speculated, the jacket was indeed caught in the latch. But it wasn't just the jacket, it was the big nylon zipper that was caught!!! I pushed and pulled and turned the key back and forth and pushed and pulled some more ... after a while I could feel the trunk "unlocking" (a definite click and then I could pull the trunk up a little bit, like maybe a quarter of an inch ... so I pushed it down so it would click shut, then "unlocked it", pulled it up a smidge then back down, etc, etc, etc. :Ohno: Finally I just got really steamed and basically did a "squat lift" pulling on the trunk lid and, bam! it released and opened ...and there, still jammed firmly in the latch, was the zipper of my jacket. I pulled it out and there's a pretty good grease stain and a couple of teeth on the zipper are gnarled up .. but I tried it and the zipper still works and the trunk latch/lock works and everybody's happy!
