Looking into this further, in lib/RT/Acton/AutoOpen.pm, in the 'prepare'
function, $self->TransactionObj->IsInbound is coming out as a positive
integer, so the 'prepare' function is returning 'undef' and the action
isn't being performed.
This is some change in the behaviour of RT between 3.8.1 and 3.8.8 that
has caught us unawares. Reading into this a bit more, it looks like the
'Open Tickets' action was written with a very specific purpose in mind,
to re-open tickets if the requester sends further email. We were not
using the action for this purpose.
So, I guess the appropriate final solution is indeed to use custom
action code in the Scrip.
