I think I found the right place where things go wrong.

In /opt/rt3/share/html/RTIR/Update.html, the following happens:

     $DefaultStatus=($ARGS{'Status'} ||$Ticket->Status());

This makes sense: if there is no "DefaultStatus" argument, substitute 
the "Status" argument or the current ticket status. Below this line, the 
page title is defined according to $DefaultStatus. So $DefaultStatus now 
holds the expected Status change.

Now, when the page is build, The hidden form inputs below are used:

<input type="hidden" name="DefaultStatus" value="<% $ARGS{DefaultStatus} 
<input type="hidden" name="Status" value="<% $ARGS{DefaultStatus} %>">

Well... for replies (or comments), the "DefaultStatus" is not passed on 
on the URL. So $ARGS{DefaultStatus} is empty. That's why we set 
$DefaultStatus like above. If now Update.html is called by submitting 
the form, it tries to set the Status to the empty value. This causes the 
"Status: Illegal Value" error, and therefore the missing Status update, 
leading to the "Started" date not set.

Instead of $ARGS{DefaultStatus}, $DefaultStatus should be used. Here is 
the diff for /opt/rt3/share/html/RTIR/Update.html:

< <input type="hidden" name="DefaultStatus" value="<% 
$ARGS{DefaultStatus} %>">
< <input type="hidden" name="Status" value="<% $ARGS{DefaultStatus} %>">
 > <input type="hidden" name="DefaultStatus" value="<% $DefaultStatus %>">
 > <input type="hidden" name="Status" value="<% $DefaultStatus %>">
< % if ($Type eq 'Report' and $ARGS{'DefaultStatus'} eq 'rejected') {
 > % if ($Type eq 'Report' and $DefaultStatus eq 'rejected') {

Time for a coffee.
