OK that's not the cleanest way but I've done similar now.
My start-commit script now checks against Active Directory via LDAP and
optionally tells the user his real name (with case-sensitivness)

If anyone is interested, my start-commit script:

--- snip ---

SAMACCOUNTNAME=`ldapsearch -x -D "<DOMAIN>\<login>" -s sub -LLL -w
<password> "sAMAccountName=$USER" sAMAccountName | awk '$1 ==
"sAMAccountName:" {print $2}'`

   echo "Your provided username \"$USER\" does not match case! You have
to use \"$SAMACCOUNTNAME\"" >&2
   exit 1

# All checks passed, so allow the commit.
exit 0
--- snip ---
