On Target "Open" spell can not hit certain objects
While playing I've seen at least two places where I cannot open door/container with a spell. First one is a small chest on a bookshelf in "Tower of Tel Fyr, Hall of Fyr", other one is door to Mehra Milo's cell in "Ministry of Truth, Prison Keep" (screens attached). Both targeted and "on touch" spells fail. However, there are no problems with activating or lockpicking those objects.
Spell works only if I disable the bookshelf (or that wooden thing around door) via console, or use TCL to go right inside the chest/behind the door.

- Subject changed from "Open" spell sometimes cannot find target to On Target "Open" spell can not hit certain objects
- Target version changed from openmw-0.38 to openmw-future
Bug is fixed for touch spells, but not for target spells like Ekash's Lock Splitter scrolls.
I am seeing the same issue with the vanilla MW executable. Problem is that these book shelves have too large a collision box.
We could make the projectiles test against the rendering mesh instead of the collision mesh, but there is the possibility of introducing new bugs / compatibility issues by deviating from the original behaviour.
