LDAP Users and Groups in WebNotify

Our installations of Foswiki correctly use LDAP users and groups for authentication and authorization. One idiosyncrasy I've noticed is that LDAP users and groups can be used directly in access control settings, but groups must be enclosed by single quotes in WebNotify pages.

For example, if we have an LDAP group called "somegroup", the following works:

Set ALLOWWEBCHANGE = somegroup

But in WebNotify it must be specified as:

   * 'somegroup'

Likewise a username can be used in an ACL, but cannot be used in WebNotify. In WebNotify, the WikiName must be used instead of the username (regardless of whether or not the username is enclosed by single quotes).

How did you get Group notifications to work? Mine don't work with either quotes or no quotes, even though user notifications work.

I have tried to use a WikiGroup that points to some ldap usernames. My WikiGroup is working for access control but WebNotify doesn't work when I use my WikiGroup. WebNotify only works fine when I put complete email adresses. How should I write my WikiGroup in this case? Is WikiGroup pointing to ldap usernames supposed to work?

I believe it should. Just incase it helps, here's our (sanitized) LDAP config that works with our Active Directory 2008 R2.
