ldap attributes and spaces

I'm trying to retrieve some replyItems from an AD backend. It works fine as 
expected with most attributes, but there are some string attributes which 
contain spaces like

displayName = aaa Restena, Fondation

with ldap.attrmap

RESTENA-Full-Name		displayName

(RESTENA-Full-Name properly defined as dictionary item, in two tries once as 
string, once as octets)

This gets picked up by rlm_ldap as 

RESTENA-Full-Name = aaa

I.e. processing stops after the first space. I can work around this entering 
quotes literally in the appropriate AD attribute, like

displayName = "aaa Restena, Fondation"

then FR picks up the whole string, but without the quotes (which is what I 
want). Unfortunately, the AD is not mine and changes on their end are a 
no-go. Is there anything I can do on the FR side that gives me the whole
