Maybe a new second master override code can be provided to the flight attendants during an incident (via air-phone with ground control) that completely override the pilots lock would cover this issue. There would have to be a risk-assessment on the ground in order to provide this code. Although I'm not sure if there is enough time to do this (8 minutes?).

When it is not necessary to make a decision, it is necessary not to make a decision.
