Newly painted door sticking on weatherstripping

I repainted my side door and put new weatherstripping up last week. We allowed the door to dry for about 8 hours. Everytime we open the door, the weatherstripping is sticking to the door. No paint has come off yet, but it will most likely happen soon enough.

Whats a good fix for this? Wax edge of door? Is this common?

just smear some petrolium jelly
vaseline along the strip should cure it
