Hello Dan,

The script you're looking for is part of RT-Extensions-Utils, but I
know what in those sessions. Some of your users searched for tickets
and RT found too many of them, so there is now big map for 'first',
'next', 'prev' and 'last' links in the session. RT 3.8.8 has really
good improvement in that area, we now store only part of the map and
size of the map can be controlled from the RT config.

I would suggest you to test RT 3.8.8 RC3 to make sure there is no
regressions that will stop you from upgrading to RT 3.8.8.
