LDAP expression matches whitespace


When matching against properties with whitespace in their value, include
whitespace in the expression in order for the match to succeed

1. On the service model element properties page for "Elements", open the
"Match" tab
2. Select the element to match under
3. Check the box "Use LDAP Syntax"
4. Enter a whitespace-aware LDAP Expression in the box
    To match against an element with name "element1  " (2 trailing spaces),
enter the expression "(cn=element1  )" (with 2 spaces before the ')' ) or use a
wildcard: "(cn=element1*)"
