When attempting to properly create identity mapping rules for configuring sasl authentication for GSSAPI and DIGEST MD5 mechanisms, the setup can fail  as well as due to mis-configuration as well. How should one configure the ODSEE to properly handle client requests, including linux clients that present credentials based on section of RFC 4513?

It appears that notation based on following this section of the RFC will fail if u: or dn: is included in the submitted mapping. Experimenting with the configuration directives fails as well. How can we properly configure the ODSEE for SASL / GSSAPI authentication against a kerberos provider that provides support for the u: and dn: notation being presented by our custom and openldap based clients.
