Different screenreaders, on different platforms, behave differently, so
that's not always a given.

In any case, it's difficult to dig in/diagnose this sort of thing
further without seeing the actual markup and code in action.

By all means, if the root cause is elusive, I'd note it under 2.1.1 if
all else fails. But possibly not as a hard failure, more as a "this is
broken, but it's not quite clear why and it works with keyboard without
AT running" (I'm assuming that's the case, right? Also, even with VO
active, does it open with just Enter or Space, without the VO keys also
being pressed?)
