cn: Weird User

Verified in 6.3.0.ER4
Changed back to Known Issue as per 1097167.
In previous versions of JBoss EAP 6, user authentications would fail if the User ID (UID) contained a 'slash' character ('/'). This was because the LdapExtended login module did not handle the character correctly. In this release of the product the module has been updated and now removes quotes from the user DN before binding. This resolves the issue and users can authenticate as expected.
