The house I am playing in has very small bedrooms (its a Gallery house).  I did exactly as the fix said, and turned one door around.  My sim who was in the bedroom, when I did this was then stuck inside the room.  In this case, the workaround was to remove all the bedroom doors in the house.  It's hardly a perfect fix, but at least no one can get stuck inside rooms anymore - but of course I've lost the ability to lock any doors.

 

The fact I am trying to simulate a Prison, where all bedrooms should be lockable (as they are in real life), I guess it doesn't matter.  And since this is a lot I downloaded from the gallery, specifically for this purpose, it hardly makes sense that I have to make allocations and simply accept a fix which in this case doesn't apply.

@TheSolidRequiem Except that if this is a player-made building rather than something that came with the game you can't necessarily assume it has no errors in the way the doors have been applied.

As of the moment of this writing, I will rescind my earlier statements concerning doors not locking.  I was able to find a sliding door which appears to do what I need.  But as I've noted in the past, things which are working on one play session have a tendency to suddenly not work.
