shower door leaks water over the floor when opened ..

Our glass shower door seems to do the job of keeping the water inside the stall.., but when the door is opened the water along the bottom trough leaks all over the floor for the few seconds the door is opened until we quickly close it...

is there a membrane missing or should be installed along that bottom of the glass door ? There is a gutter there but it quickly fills up and deposits the water on the bathroom floor....

Generally the trough at the bottom of the door is slanted toward the hinge side so water will immediately run back into the shower, even with the door open, sort of like a gutter. This could have been mis-installed when the door was installed and not slanted.

Is the track clean, and the drain holes clear?
