Error description

  • If a user has an extended ascii character (code beyond 128, eg.
    an accented character) in their DN, attempts to
    login with OS authentication enabled will fail because the DN
    can't be matched.
    
    To recreate:
    
     - specify DNs/keys for the Administrator, and a user for which
    the DN contains an extended ascii character
     - enable OS authentication in the database
     - log in to the client OS as the user containing the extended
    ascii character then attempt to start the client using the
    "-osUser" switch
    
    The login will fail with a message indicating the inability to
    handle the upper ascii character in the DN.
