I checked the code. The text you insert into the input field is splitted
on charcters that are not alphanumeric, dash '-', dot '.' or semicolon
';'. The reason is that according to RFC 4512 these are the valid
characters an attribute name may consist of. So your 'user_id' attribute
contains an invalid character, the underscore.

So to answer your question: If we are strict to the RFC standard it is
an OID-bug. However it makes sense to relax this rule a bit, could you
please file an Jira?

BTW: I already realized that the OID server comes with some attributes
that contain such underscores. This makes us some problems as the schema
parser doesn't handle that atm.
