It does, but I expect something in your application stack to overwrite 
or delete it again.

If you want to find out what happens, you need to get into a more simple 
test situation, like deploying a trivial app (e.g. the default Tomcat 
ROOT context), and simply add a JSP or servlet there that shows you the 
request.getRemoteUser(). I expect that to work. Then the question why it 
doesn't work in your app is up to your application and framework code.
