Plain normal. Dot is not a valid char in an attrbute name per RFC 4512.

Change your attributes name to comply to the specification.

M$ does not give a shit about LDAP and broke the specification on 
purpose, but I'm sorry to say that's not our problem. AD is not an LDAP 
compliant server anyway...

Replacing every dot by an hyphen using a small sed script should not be 
a big issue though.
