Fwd: Bug#552433: libnss-ldapd: ignores case of uids

Dear stable release team,

A user reported a bug (#552433) against libnss-ldapd which causes some
problems and asked if a fix can be made available in a stable update.

I can probably backport the fix to version but I wanted to know
if such a fix will be considered a candidate for proposed-updates before
putting in the effort.

I'm not 100% sure I completely agree with the severity but in a
multi-user system one user can "pollute" the nscd cache which causes
problems for another user user which is not good. A little more info is
in the bugreport.

Btw, the commit that implements this functionality can be found here:
I haven't tested yet if it applies correctly to but it is not
very small  (9 files changed, 133 insertions, 151 deletions, excluding
documentation and tests).
