It's a much better idea to use countersunk stainless steel screws. Grind little grooves in the countersunk screw head, which allows you to slide them along the trim, line them up with holes in the door, and fix them on the inside with stainless steel nuts.
Small disadvantage is that you have to have access to the inside of the door. Much more solid way of fixing the trim though.
I posted about it a while back with photos.

Below are a couple of photos.
Uses plenty of grease in holes, on the back etc. Vaseline on the back side of the trim.
