Help with Scientist's area

Anyone know how to open the first blast door after riding the elevator up at the start? I've hacked the computer above, but the door just remains locked, and there's nothing else to be done.

I have the exact same problem.

When I checked some walkthroughs on youtube it occured to me that on some of them the door also didn't open. When the player left the area (went down with the lift and inspected the surrounding area) and returned to the door, it suddenly DID open.

It's possible that I'm missing something obvious, but for now it seems to be a bug. And a gamebreaking one at that...

There's a temporary workaround that's been posted on Double Fine's forums:

I've tried their fix, but all I get is an error message saying my save game is now invalid.

And I've tried to make a post saying that on their forums, but even after registering there's apparently no post button? The hell?

Odd, there should be three grey boxes at the bottom of the page (outside of the main white box) that read 'Fast Reply', 'Post Reply' & 'New Topic'.
What gets us into trouble is not what we don't know.
It's what we know for sure that just ain't so.
