OK, I can see what this "problem" is. I will let you decide if you should
fix it or not. r14543 now gets the lock owner out of a custom header.
However, this header was not sent by the server prior to this fix. So my
problem would occur when using an RC2+ client with an RC2 or earlier
server. Once the server is on RC2+ it will be sending the header that the
client is looking for.

Perhaps the client could fallback to ras->auth_username if it does not get
the header?
