Bug? getevents w/ usejournal

Hey guys. I've been working on an option to download your shared journals in my client, but apparently I've run into a bug. Here is the header that's being sent to the server, verbatim (except for the stripped password) from the debug log:

POST /cgi-bin/log.cgi HTTP/1.0
Host: www.livejournal.com
Content-type: application/x-www-url-formencoded
Content-length: 111
Connection: Close

mode=getevents&user=xb95&hpassword=<password stripped>&selecttype=syncitems&usejournal=lochjournal

I'm using the usejournal key like the protocal list says, however, when the server returns its reply, it's sending me xb95's journal, not the entries from the shared lochjournal journal.

Am I just missing something here, or is this a bug? Known, unknown, fix in the works, or whatnot?

Another thing I just noticed is the fact that if you specify usejournal=xb95 or whatever your username is, it says "You do not have access to post to this journal." Heh.
