I just accidentally partially answered this question:
D:\dba\bin>rman target backup_user/_at_b.radisys.com nocatalog

This appears to be acting just as if I had used this command:
rman target /_at_b.radisys.com nocatalog
which logs me in as SYSDBA
I can't seem to find any documentation describing this behavior.
Both 'slaxdebug' and 'debug trace <filename>' were used as well.
Both forms of debug start their output following the logon, so they weren't much help.
