Upgrade to the lastest mod_auth_sspi module. You'll find that it has
some new config options, one of them is
which you can set to either 'lower' or 'higher'. This will take care of
the case issues you have with the domain. Also, it has an option
which you can set to 'on'. That way the domain name is ommitted from the
username - the logs will only show the username.
