I was able to get it open by using two flat metal strips in the top seam near each side and moving things around to try and get them where the latch mechanism were on the pin (There are horizontal pins in a grove approximately 1/4" away from the edge of either side of the glove box, and the handle is supposed to pull a hook back enough so you can release past the pin, but over time it gets stuck and then won't open). I liberally WD-40'd the latch mechanism and forced it back and forth for a few minutes, and now I can open and close it without any major trouble.
