Need to find a solution to manage users with the same login on different ldap servers :
- maybe change login identifier in login + domain ?

Some consideration about this issue.

Angel Bosch suggest on https://mail.gna.org/public/glpi-user/2011-06/msg00024.html that another ID can be used, as the email; tecnically it is right, but i think that this approach can work for external users, but in a LAN/WAN corporate network users are normally used to input user, password and domain.
Also, probably this approach will work only for LDAP, not for other auth method.

So for me it is true that the login have to move to ''three field auth'', using user, login and an ''authentication domain'', that clearly have to be unique across different auth method (LDAP, IMAP/POP/..., CAS, ...).
