My gut feeling is that the username map should behave the same
whether in security = domain or security = ads.

However, to do this would mean that everyone in
security = domain would have to update their username maps
to user the fully qualified username instead of just the
login portion.

Do people think this would be a good change (for consistency)?
Are people willing to read the release notes and make any
necessary changces to their username map? :-)

cheers, jerry
