Fantastic - thank you so much for following up with this! The captain's diary (http://www.warsailors.com/oddswar/diary.html) says Ringulv's crew left the ship on June 17-1941, so the crew must have been French after that.
I think what you're saying about the arrival date Oran might explain why some sources claims she was requisitioned there (though the date given by some, June 17-1940 is totally wrong). I think we can safely eliminate the name Ste Marguerite.
What you're saying about Ste Colette (Norwegian Kari) is a little puzzling, and will require some more thinking on my part.
