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.
