That depends on the way you configure Apache, but normaly Apache will make
an internal redirect to call Embperl. I am not quite sure how Apache 2
handles REMOTE_USER on redirects, but normaly it is only set when an
authentication is required. Maybe this is not done for the redirect.

At the top of your add


But you have to be aware that you then only see the user from the main
request and not from the internal redirect. As you decribed things that is
what you want, but you should keep it in mind.
