I'm working to understand what you mean by "...the RT homepage doesn't
list any tickets in that status" ... I think you mean that none of the
ticket lists like "10 highest priority tickets I own". You also didn't
mention what version of RT you're using, and that makes a big

If you're using 3.5.x or greater, log in as a SuperUser and click the
Edit button by the offending list of tickets. You should see a link
which will allow you to edit the underlying query; most of those queries
are looking for new and/or open, so just add your statuses and save it

If you're in 3.4.x, it's tougher and I'm not qualified to guide you
blind. I think you're going to end up editing the underlying HTML files
for several elements on the page, but there may be smarter ways to get
what you want.

BTW, if you're on pre-3.5.x, you really owe it to yourself to install a
dev instance of 3.6.0pre0 (or even just 3.5.5) and see what you're
missing. It's night and day. =]
