Anyone figure out a hack to close the rear tailgate from inside the X5?

Very frustrating driving SUVs from other automakers (Mercedes-Benz GL-Class right now) with power-operated tailgates that open and CLOSE from within the cabin.

Anyone with a solution?

I don't understand what is the concern from BMW. My mother's Chrysler Town and Country has that feature and I don't recall any horrible accident reported and result in a major lawsuit.

Darn, I wish I put that into the survey when I had the chance.
