Dome rotation still not working during Polar Align

There was a longstanding problem in which the Dome doesn't move when doing a Polar Align until after I press the ABORT button.  But I may have found the issue causing it.I just noticed that the INDI driver for the CEM120 EC2 clears the Telescope Pier Side value as soon as I tell the mount to go HOME.   If I slew the mount tho a location, the Telescope pier Side is noted.  But if I go HOME, it goes blank.  

When I Polar Align, I always start at HOME.  Thus the Telescope pier Side is blank, and the dome won't rotate.  After I note this, I press ABORT in the mount's INDI control panel.  But by the time I do that, the mount has moved, and now shows the Telescope pier Side value.  This the dome then syncs up after I press abort.
