      Description

      When using XWiki with the LDAP Authenticator extension, logging in as "<user>" creates the XWiki user "<user>".

      However when logging in as " <user>" or "<user> " (leading/trailing whitespaces) an additional XWiki user "<user>_1", "<user>_2" etc. is created that maps to the same LDAP DN.

      The user profiles look like this:
      LDAP DN: "uid=<user>,..." (no whitespace)
      LDAP user unique identifier: " <user>" (with whitespace)

      Tested with:

      • XWiki 8.4.4
      • LDAP Authenticator 9.2.1
      • OpenLDAP 2.4.40
