Help with g.8032

I have been helping a client setup a g.8032 RPL.  I have a ton of knowledge around RPL in Cisco world.

There is one item that is confusing me, there is a drop down for East Owner and West Owner for RPL Owner.  Do we need an owner for both directions to block RPL traffic when not going that direction?

I had this working in the lab, but when it was brough to the field it stopped working...

What I see happening is the attributes show IDLE, but then all blocking changes to Flash both East and West and we get a big network loop.

Any suggestions what I missed?
