(ITS#7521) Passwords with either a comma or period don't authenticate against AD LDAP

Currently using tikiwki (PHP) with LDAP authentication, and began experimenting
with xwiki (Java) also with LDAP authentication.  Both against an Active
Directory server.  With both systems you cannot authenticate a password with
either a comma or a period, so suspect it is the underlying OpenLDAP libraries. 
The test password had both a comma and period, and the account is locked right
now so I can't easily test which one or both are required to activate the bug.

I did try looking for this bug suspecting that it would have been reported, and
didn't find it.  Hope this isn't a duplicate.
