Batchmodify must either expand $USER or filter it out of the owners list.

The owners list (with restricted_owners on) currently shows the 'magic' $USER owner.
In the trac admin this auto expands to your current user. However with batch modifications it sets the owner of tickets to "$USER".
Either it should also be expanded to the current user or skip it all together. For the latter option I made a small patch for batchmod.js
