Can you tell me what version of RT you're working with? This sounds 
a lot like an issue I patched last week. My latest fixes will be in
3.8.8, (Though there are other related issues I've patched over the 
past couple weeks that should end up in 3.8.7.)

9af5e79efcad3e8bffc9c2fe97d3fabc53f42cac and
6241b7df1b3d755c097b497b696134b8d4c2b6e3 are the two git commits it'd be
great to have you try out. Do thsoe fix your issue?
