I completely overlooked the fact I have the LH1 top plate on my cor screwed down so it barely moves as I lift LH1 off instead of roll down to release the split plate (or the perforation in the LH1 fingerplate on oboes).

That's commonplace here in the UK where most players tend to lift LH1 off instead of roll down for the upper register C# to Eb and lower altissimo register. Only some cors aren't equipped with that adjusting screw to finely adjust the venting of the perforated plate - mainly older European ones, so they either have to get one fitted or wedge the bridge down with a thick chunky cork.
