Hi all.

I'm testing squid 4.x with Active Directory connection.

When there are spaces in logged accounts eg : "Jhon Rambo" squid use 
only the last string in logon user "Rambo".

This corrupted account is used in all ACLS and events too and all acls 
matches Rambo and not "Jhon Rambo"

This behavior can be replicated in Squid 3.5x branchs too and be 
replicated in both LDAP/NTLM methods.

* * It should be a security issue and an issue according governments 
laws * *

1) If we create acls for the account "Rambo" that is - an another person 
- of "Jhon Rambo" , Jhon Rambo aka "Rambo" for squid use the same ACLs 
as "Rambo" account.
2) In Europe we must keep Squid logs for the police during 1 year 
according Justice needs. This corruption break logs validity according 
Squid did not reflect the real connected username.

How to fix it ?

Best regards
