longwell "Referring Resources"

Wiser heads,

Here's an embarrassing puzzle. I was tinkering around with owl:sameAs and
external resources and got something clever to work. I tinkered with it
some more and it broke and I can't seem to fix it.

I've got a file example.rdf with the following elements:

<uwdl:Record rdf:about="http://content.lib.washington.edu/contentcollections/citiesandbuildings#MLC1010">
    <dc:source rdf:resource="http://content.lib.washington.edu/contentcollections#citiesandbuildings"/>
    <dc:creator rdf:resource="http://content.lib.washington.edu/contentcollections/creator#Gehry,_Frank_O.,_1929-"/>
    <dc:description>view with detail of shopping and dining concourse (Festival Disney)</dc:description>
    ... more properties

<dc:creator rdf:about="http://content.lib.washington.edu/contentcollections/creator#Gehry,_Frank_O.,_1929-">
   <rdfs:label>Gehry, Frank O., 1929-</rdfs:label>
   <owl:sameAs rdf:resource="http://errol.oclc.org/laf/n82-13991.html"/>

I've got another file authorities.n3:

_at_prefix rdf: <http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#> .
_at_prefix rdfs: <http://www.w3.org/2000/01/rdf-schema#> .
_at_prefix owl: <http://www.w3.org/2002/07/owl#> .
_at_prefix dc: <http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/> .
_at_prefix oclc: <http://simile.mit.edu/2004/04/ontologies/oclc#> .
_at_prefix uwdl: <http://content.lib.washington.edu/contentcollections#> .
_at_prefix seo: <http://somebody.elses.ontology/controlledvocabulary#>.

         owl:sameAs <http://content.lib.washington.edu/contentcollections/creator#Gehry,_Frank_O.,_1929-> ;
         oclc:name "Gehry, Frank O., 1929-" ;
         rdfs:seeAlso <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Gehry> ;
         dc:description """Frank Owen Gehry (born Ephraim Goldberg... more description""" ;
         seo:mostAtrociousBuilding <http://content.lib.washington.edu/contentcollections/citiesandbuildings#MLC1010>

seo:mostAtrociousBuilding rdfs:label "Most Atrocious Building" .

Now when Longwell aggregates these files, KNOWLE rightly shows me that
both of the resources equated by owl:sameAs have a property
seo:mostAtrociousBuilding which points to Eurodisneyland. KNOWLE also
shows me that Eurodisneyland has "Other References": "Gehry, Frank O.,
1929-" "Most Atrocious Building" "this"; however, Longwell, when pointed
at Eurodisneyland, does not show "Gehry, Frank O., 1929-" in a list of
"Referring resources:."

In some earlier version of authorities.n3 I persuaded longwell to list a
referring resource, but now it won't. As usual, I feel like I'm missing
something obvious; can anybody give me a clue

Clueless in Seattle,

PS. the opinion of Gehry's work reflected in my arbitrary choice of label
is equally arbitrary, and not necessarily even my own.
