sorry but the sAMAccountName has the white spaces too:

$ ldapsearch -h server -x -LLL -b "dc=mydom,dc=de" -D "cn=Proxy 
Benutzer,cn=Users,dc=mydom,dc=de" -W "cn=max mustermann" sAMAccountName 
| grep sAMAccountName
Enter LDAP Password:
sAMAccountName: Max Mustermann

I know it is ugly, but it is not born on my idea. But MS also dont have 
any problems with it. Is it not really supported in samba?
