Approving manager can't edit document

I have a form with an Computed Authors Field called AuthorNames with the following properties:
Type: Authors
Allow multi-values: Enabled
Security Options: None
Formula: @UserName:ApprovingManager

...where ApprovingManager is a name selected by the document creator to allow his Manager to edit the document. Its value comes from a lookup into the People view in the NAB.

Both users and the server share a same common hierarchical ancestor.

I create a document with the above form and save it. I look at the AuthorNames properties, which does show each of the two entries on a separate line. the Field Flag is SUMMARY READ/WRITE-ACESS NAMES. Its data type does show a Text List. The Creator and the Approving manager have Author Access to the DB in the ACL. I have made sure that they are not in any other group with a lower access to the db (I have explicitly listed them as individual entries in the ACL with Author Access).

The question is: Why CAN'T the Approving Manager edit the document?
What am I doing wrong?
Please put my mind to rest.

You should use the fully qualified name in the ApprovingManager field and make sure that you are not using a separator character that might be contained in the name, such as " ".
