Maybe Dago could provide a description of the architecture.

Returning to the REMOTE_USER not being defined, after a cursory look at
other people having issues with that it seems that even if the
environment variable is not provided, there is a possibility to obtain
the remote user from the "authorization" header, see
but maybe this is also modified by the proxy.

We need more information about the proxy's configuration.
