It's a known limitation of the LDAP server. The user creation form contains a notice about that, should it be made more evident ?

The form should probably do validation before submitting, and kick back to the user if unacceptable characters are used. Something on the page stating what characters are allowed could also help.

As of this morning it should already work like that.
