Almost certainly; your tables are probably not InnoDB tables, and hence
are non-transactional.  This will cause you pain.  You will want to
either ensure your old 3.23 MySQL is built with InnoDB support[1], or
upgrade to MySQL 4.0.x (which RT is actually supported running under). 
You'll then want to go about upgrading all of those tables you have from
MyISAM to InnoDB[2], or just doing a reinstall of RT.
  I'm curious though, as RT 3.2.1's install should be checking to make
sure you have InnoDB support -- was this an upgrade or something?
