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?).
