Why would alphanumeric login names act differently from standard firstname.lastname login names in LdapContrib?


mail=abc123@woozer.com, givenName=John, sn=Doe

When logging in as abc123, the wikiname JohnDoe shows up.

mail=boo.radley@woozer.com, givenName=Boo, sn=Radley

When logging in as boo.radley, the wikiname is booradley; logging in as BOO.RADLEY results in BOORADLEY wikiname, and so on.

This second type of login name is case sensitive, where the wikiname is NOT pulled from cache.db, but created on the spot, based on the way the cn (in this case boo.radley) is capitalized.

Any Ideas?

I have the same problem. I collected a bit more information under LdapUserMappingWithDotInLoginname (debug log, strange login name encoding).
