APEX 5.1, ORDS 3.0.8 First Party application (APEX) authentication fails with invalid username/password.

Have a simple ORDS rest endpoint which can call from APEX when it's unprotected. As soon as its added to a Restful privilege then an "401 Unauthorized" occurs despite setting the Apex-Session http header to my request in the correct format.
