Note that most likely your application is broken, assuming that the DN can be 
constructed from a suffix and a username is not a good idea. The application 
should search for an entry that has a matching value for the "username" 
attribute is using, and bind as the resulting DN. This would allow the RDN to 
differ from the username attribute.
