No, actually, the garage is detached.  The myth box is probably a good
15 or 20 metres from the garage door; the antenna is even further.

I'm pretty sure it's the opener motor, since it seems to interfere
whether the door is opened by the inside button or by the remote.
There's a little interference with the door goes back down, but the
problem is mostly only when it goes up.

Thanks for the suggestions; I'll try them.  All this time, I'd assumed
this was a very common problem....
