ah-ha found out what was wrong!
on the door jamb there is an extra piece of wood that is attached to the jamb. It runs from just below the latch to approx the floor. This extra piece is notched for the dovetail and, lower, a bumper.

For the right/left pair of these woden parts I paid 60$ but as my local sources did not have them I had to order them in.

Thanks to all that considered the answer to this stubborn problem!
