Sound good, anything to do, that this is not lost?

Another question.
If this problem occurs now in Kolab2 is this possible?
Creating user "Hans Meier",
Using a LDAP-browser and change

dn: cn=Hans Meier,dc=kolab,dc=org


dn: cn=Hans Meier+[DATE]+[TIME],dc=kolab,dc=org

saving and closing browser and now create a new user "Hans Meier". This 
results to a new

dn: cn=Hans Meier,dc=kolab,dc=org

This procedure seems to be valid (and could be easily added to the kolab 
service *hint* :-)
