So no open it again, and 'state now reports 'open' again. At this point, back to square one (confused? I am!).

OK, I have hung myself.

Even finding this bug report, and shipping off a quick mail, deadly, spookily all quiet on the DSDT front.

So for googlers everywhere, I have at least got a dirty hack:

It's not right, nor even wrong, but at least it works (sorta).
