Probably the result of either stress or moisture in the wood but a warped door can also occur during clamping especially if using pipe clamps as they tend to have non parallel force vectors. More so when doing cope and stick.

One solution is to make a deeper mortise this can prevent warping to some degree.

Jim is right about the splining trick – pretty darn slick & yes it does work. I use epoxy.
