Some question about murder and ptloader

Hello everyone, for a couple weeks i had been reading the documentation 
and old mail in the list archives. So far so good mupdate can 
authenticate through sasl using a ldap backend, at the moment i have 1 
frontend, 1 backend, and the mupdate(master) all 3 are running cyrus 
2.5.7. However there are stuff that i can hardly grasp, so hopefully any 
of you can cast some light in the next 3 points.

1 There is a know limitations for the uses of spaces on ldap parameters? 
What i mean is:


Case 1
ldap_bind_dn: uid=cyrus-admin,ou=services,dc=example,dc=org
Case 2
ldap_bind_s: uid=cyrus-admin,ou=special users,dc=example,dc=org

In case 1 both testsaslauthd and mupdatetest can authenticate just fine, 
but in case 2 only testsaslauthd will.

2 In a murder deployment like this, should ptloader be running on all 
server or just a part of it, backend? frontend? (M)mupdate?

3 In my attempt to be consistent through the murder setup i replicated 
some portion of the config in all 3 servers, overkill ?
