Did you see a flash ready light in the viewfinder? If so, you should get 
1/60 shutter speed. The flash ready signal is how the camera knows there 
is a T flash attached.

The T32 manual shows the viewfinder flash confirmation light indicating 
flash ready and flashing to show adequate flash exposure in flash Auto 
mode on the OM-1n, so the flash ready indication does indeed operate in 
flash Auto mode. There wouldn't be any point in the OM-1n otherwise. 
That should cause the OM-2n in camera Auto to set a fixed 1/60.
