MX Window locked annoyance

Somewhere before 2021.24.4 Tesla changed the Window behavior on my X. Really frustrating.
While my X is unlocked, I would always be able to put Windows up or down from the driver and passenger Window door buttons.

The new behavior locks out ALL windows about 20 seconds after exiting the drivers seat. And the only way to (easily??) re-enable windows is to either a) press the brake pedal or b) quickly lock and unlock the car. Then you only get maybe 30 seconds before windows are disabled again.
Very frustrating.
With the Model X and its Falcon doors.... it was quite convenient to open a window and get what you want, instead of flying the doors open each time.

Anyone else confirm this behavior? MX 2017 MCU2

If Tesla is going to enable some sort of lock out feature... they need to give us a setting button for it. Not all areas are as theft prone as [pick you major Metro here].
