It always is, isn't it? ;]

Sorta. I should have realized that you were using a whole copy of RT.pm
rather than putting only the function you need to override into
local/lib/RT_Local.pm, which is included by lib/RT.pm (using a require
statement at the end) and which will then cause your version of the
function to prevail.

I just kinda assumed that you knew the whole *_Local.pm trick (which
works for pretty much every major perl module in RT) ... but since I
only learned it in the last three months, though, you'd think I'd
remember to mention it.
