When setting {NormalizeWikiNames} & {NormalizeLoginName} to both TRUE and login with account y_kevin3 (LDAP cn=y_kevin3). YKevin3 topic is created but variable %USERNAME% returns Y_kevin3! So I can use Y_kevin3 only to do authorization control but this will confuse TWiki user a lot because the user topic is YKevin3!

NewLdapUserTemplate will render out

   * Set ALLOWTOPICCHANGE = Main.YKevin3 
and user can't modify his own page!

A line " Set GROUP = ...,Y_kevin3" in group topic definition (Because I can use Y_kevin3 to do authorization only) will show like "....,YKevin3" in topic TWikiGroups! But the group definition is workable!
