Issue #29286: Missing in Action - Grey Mane entrances permanently locked, trespassing messes with Quest

Hey, I've encountered a problem with the Quest "Missing in action".
I'm playing on PS4 and started this playthrough with only USSEP "version 10" already installed/activated.

Here's my course of action:

1. I accepted the quest from Fralia at the market
2. didn't immediately go to meet her, did other quests for a couple of hours
3. I notice both doors to Grey Mane house are locked, no matter the time of day
4. I enter regardless, the quest progress as usual at first, Avulstein/Fralia have their talk and then Avulstein starts up a conversation with me. However after some seconds Fralia starts asking me to leave and eventually calls the guards if I don't.
5. The only way to progress here is by skipping through Avulsteins dialogue and leaving asap.
6. I steal the letter from the Battleborns, as Avulstein asked me to.
7. When I return, I'm still seen as a trespasser and Avulstein/Frelia tell me to leave, I can't start a conversation with them. => Impossible to progress the Quest.

I attached my Ps4 savegame files - It's right before entering the Gray Mane house for the first time

I've seen a report (#21367) which describes exactly this issue, however the report is four years old and hasn't been updated for three years so I thought this would be more

after trying out stuff all day I came up with some unconventional solutions, could be useful for people running into the same issue:

1.When you enter for the first time, instantly back out of Avulsteins dialogue and run out the door. As long as he hasn't finished his "run past chatter" he will follow you outside, where you can then normally talk. After having talked to Avulstein, Fralia will get out again after a while so you can also talk with her

2. However, when you have to get back to Avulstein, to deliver the letter from the Battleborns, he won't follow you outside anymore no mater what. So what you can do is hitting him with once and run outside, once you're outside sheathe your weapons and he will stop attacking you and you can talk. This will give you a bounty of 40 but you can continue the quest.
