Comment #1 on issue 3528 by UnicodeDecodeError while LDAP-authenticating

After suffering a similar problem, I found out that this bug is due to the split function in line 467 in reviewboard/accounts/ (as of 2.0.11) It turns out split() doesnt work on raw strings when unicode_literals is used.

The attached patch would solve your problem in a quick-and-dirty fashion, I also discovered that using "Given name" and "Surname" attributes instead of the "Full name" one not only does the same thing, but does not trigger the bug. I would recommend doing that if you have those attributes in your LDAP
