OpenLdap PAM UID vs Username Authentication


We have recently introduced Linux into our business model, RHEL 3 to be exact. The current naming convention in our AD environment is numbers which unfortunately under some circumstances can be interpreted as a UID rather than a Username in Linux. After installing SFU 3.5 and applying the Unix Attributes for a user, say 010, it was my assumption that ldap would interpret 010 in Linux as XX010 as they would have the same UID and the same password. Any Suggestions....other than changing the naming convention would be appreciated.
