Don't use the 'Guard' property in the worklists. They don't work the way 
you'd expect. Instead, make sure that only the owner (and, say, reviewers, or 
whoever) can see the content when it's in the 'rejected' state by tweaking 
the appropriate permissions matrix in the workflow. 

The online help pages for DCWorkflow should have all the sordid details of 
why this is so.
