[Twisted-Python] weird problem with subclassing library.door.Door

Ok, I made a subclass of Door called SecretDoor. The point of this door is
that it's opened with a remote button and is not visible unless it is open.
I tried implementing this by overriding _close() in my class.
def verb_open(self, sentence):
sentence.subject.hears("This door is opened elsewhere.")
def _close(self, actor):
Unfortunately, this did not work.
The _undescribe call was apparently being cancelled out by something that was
resetting the description in the current room. I looked for calls to
_redescribe(), but couldn't find any that were being called after my
_undescribe(). Eventually I just decided to hack it out and added:
if not self.isOpen:
This is very bad, but I could not figure out any other way to do it. I still
have it this way, and I just wanted to notify glyph and anyone else who's
interested. Is there a better way to do this? Where is the description being
added back into the room?
Ahh well, thanks a bunch.
