IIRC the recommendation in the latest Asterisk book is to use only a-z, 
numerics (0-9) and underscore. So if you have [tux at chaotikum.org] in 
sip.conf then that might not work because of the '@'.

You can easily test this by adding a peer [test_1234] (so with the 
recommended syntax) and add it to your LDAP server with a password and 
then check if it registers.
