Sounds interesting!
Is the tap downstairs turned on or off, is the water bypassing the control or does the tap turn it's self on?
Seen cheap quarter turn taps turn themselves on a number of times so a change in pressure in the system using another tap might trigger it.
The ones I have seen did not need an exorcist, simply tightening up the top gland added enough friction to the tap to prevent it.
