This is interesting ... using \let\memUChead\MakeLowercase works, of
course. But if I use the ruled page style *without* your patch, I can
get the result correctly with the [nolocalmarks] option in polyglossia
(i.e., in XeLaTeX). Without the nolocalmarks, what I get is lowercase
without small caps!

In pdfLaTeX, the ruled page style works, too ... but not this one called
test! I.e., there are all caps, not small caps.

So, it seems to be curious whatever the engine.
