[CentOS] SSSD cache case-sensitivity

Hi John,

Thanks for pointing me to case_sensitive, that indeed is the cause:
the default for "case_sensitive" is "True", but for the AD provider 
"True" is invalid(??), so it defaults to "False"(???)!

Good news is that with both "case_sensitive = False" and "case_sensitive 
= Preserving" the results from AD and cache are identical (lowercase and 
case-preserving, respectively).

Since this (opposite defaults) is broken by design, I hope the AD 
provider will be fixed so it follows the general default.
