$self not exposed to templates, RT Essentials example failing

I was trying to implement the OnSteal scrip example in RT Essentials.
The Template given creates a new temporary RT::User object (so that it
can rewind and get the old owner). The problem that I’m seeing is that
$self->CurrentUser is not being exposed to the Template engine when
the scrip is processed, ie:

[Fri Feb 17 18:24:01 2006] [error]: Template parsing error: Can’t call

Is there another object that can be used to expose $CurrentUser ? I
tried $session{‘CurrentUser’}, but it’s apparently an empty hash value
at that point.

Thanks,
