Exactly the same issue as you, I wanted to develop 2 negatives at different times and trying to open that &%&$% lid was a real pain. Of course all this had to be done in the dark, so I gave up. Having a drum with 5 holes and only being able to develop one negative at the time seemed like a waste of time and developer to me. I dont know how you manage to get 10 negatives with the same developing time, but I almost never get the same developing times.
