Log message for revision 40436:
Ensure that in the presence of proxy roles, if none match, then lose.
Use the "wrapped" owner when testing context inside proxy roles.
Therfore, move check of user's roles to end, since proxy roles make the user's
roles irrelevant. This also simplifies the C version, as well, since we don't
need to worry about setting the result back to NULL if we haven't assigned it
when an error occurs.
Incorporate comments from the C version (so that correspondence is clearer).
