That code seems to turn the radio off via CE, delay, and then reset the
PRIM_RX bit, ie changes the chip from a receiver to a transmitter.

But the ACK is received when PRIM_RX=0, ie when the chip is nominally a
transmitter.  I know it technically has to be a receiver to receive the
ACK, but if you send multiple packets PRIM_RX stays at 0, right?

See the state diagram in ch. 6.  In fact see the whole of ch. 6 and 7. :) 
The state diagram is a little ambiguous as to what PRIM_RX is in Standby-I
mode.  But I think the text is clear.
