I've come across a similar thing.  I am using two LDAP servers.  This means 
that when the LDAP server is changed "function 
updateLdapSearchFields(element) " in 
skins/default/includes/ldapscripts.html is executed, which changes the 
searchfields options.  On lines 37 and 38 of ldapscripts.html:
      new_option.text  = server_fields[i];
      new_option.value = server_fields[i];

This means that the text of the options turns to the same as the value, which 
in my case is "cn" and "mail" However, to most users, "cn" isn't going to 
mean much.  It needs to be instead "Name"
