[Samba] authenticating NT users with space in username?

I don't know for shure, if this is related, but
when I use kerberos authentication, the username "with spaces" extracted 
from the kerberos ticket contains "backslash space" instead of space 
only ("Domain\ User" vs. "Domain User"). This happens in 
libads/kerberos_verify.c. Then the user cannot become authenticated.

I think the extraction is done by the kerberos library - not samba.
In my case it's heimdal-0.6.3.
