Abus Granite U-lock here, no problems. It's in daily use, which helps. I too carry lock de-icer as a backup, but I've never had to use it.

I did witness U-lock frozen solid on a friend's bike. Don't remember the lock brand, but I doubt it made any difference, as the bike had been outside several months from autumn to mid-winter. Nothing we did helped, we had to leave the bike there until spring. Even then it required a fair amount of lock oil before it opened.
