Spaces in User Account Causing Saved Search Failure


I have just upgraded my dev Splunk instance to the latest release (4.3.1, build 119532) and realized that my saved searches are no longer able to run successfully. After much checking, I have come to the conclusion that spaces in my username are causing the saved searches to fail. This is not the case for my other Splunk server running a lower version (4.2.3 build 105575).

Regarding the user accounts, they were added through LDAP integration.

Has anyone experienced this before? If so, how were you able to fix it?
