That RegEx is always true (so you can skip the condition). To check
for at least one character present, use a '.', i.e.

But anyway...

That is per-server context (which is a good idea to use) but auth and
access checks are done on a per-directory basis. That means, that the
ENV cannot be present in per-server context, i.e. before auth is being
processed. There are two possible solutions:

Use an URL-based subrequest in per-server context do determine the
value of that ENV:
RewriteRule  ^/$ http://localhost/home.seam?userid=%{LA-U:REMOTE_USER} [R,L]

use the rule in per-directory context

<Directory /path/to/docroot>
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule  ^$ http://localhost/home.seam?userid=%{REMOTE_USER} [R,L]
