Looking at a string of TA orientation courses:
All courses seem to be owned by me. Some courses (older) are listed as a single line, colon separated, in the dump.
Newer courses are listed as a record:

ohiou_219354186a7f44476oucapa2 = TA Orientation Fall 2006::lucas:ohiou:Course:11

ohiou_1v298166f2c984a68oucapa2 = $VAR1 = {
          'owner' => 'lucas:ohiou',
          'type' => 'Course',
          'description' => 'TA Orientation Fall 2009',
          'inst_code' => ''

ohiou_415919d76334171oucapa2 = TA Orientation Fall 2004::lucas:1125627177

Note that the 2004 course does not list the domain.
The 2006 course does, but possibly because I re-added myself as a course coordinator last night.

When I re-added myself as CC, I was then allowed to select the course.

Looking through, though, all the files for the professor in question have ohiou in addition to the username

Courses before 2006 for TA orientation do not list an owner, but that may be because I revoked my role as CC

All but one of the courses in question for Professor X has the professor listed as Owner.

I need to run off to an all-day meeting. I'll check in when I can.
