Possibly.  After upgrading all my Debian Sarge systems from 3.0.22 to 
3.0.23c, I had to replace the "+" with the default "\" to get it to 
work, but I don't think it's a universal problem. Maybe it's a Debian 
thing. Unlike you, valid users worked fine for me.  (My biggest headache 
has been username mapping in a security = ADS setting.)

Good luck,
