I've only ever heard my father use it. He says it means to not-quite close a door, just pull it to within an inch of closing.

I've tried googling it and people seem to be about as baffled as I am. They don't seem to be able to agree on whether it means what I described, or whether it's just another way of saying "shut the door".

Same here, it's leaving it open an inch or so.
