problem with the case of attributes' names

I encounter some problems with IBM Directory Server and python-ldap
The same app which works just fine with OpenLDAP breaks with IDS
because, it seems, of a problem with the case of attributes' names.
For example, IDS will return things like "objectclass" while
OpenLDAP will return "objectClass", and this seems to cause some
problems when retrieving and/or modifying attributes
Could this be a bug in IDS ?
Is there some rule on how to correctly handle this ?
Should apps expect attributes names in any case or not ?
Shouldn't ldap.modlist handle this automatically (not sure if it
does or not) when updating existing attributes ?
Does python-ldap do something special about name's case or not ?
Thanks in advance for any information on this subject.
