Mac Pro Optical Drive Door Problem

I recently became the proud new father of a Mac Pro 2xDual Core Xeon. It basically rocks the pants off the machine that it replaced - a poky 533Mgz G4.

But it has developed a slight problem with the little sliding door that protects the optical drive innards. It normally slides down when the tray slides out and then back up again after the tray goes back in. But mine now gets stuck when it's down. Like a depressive alcoholic, it just sits down there and sulks long after the tray has gone back home.

I can trick it back up again by raking my finger over the left side of the door a few times. I can't be the only one having this problem so I thought I'd pass it along.

Update 2007-09-19

I have not had a problem with the door for several months. Not sure what caused the problem to go away.
