Hi John i have resolved, i search on many many how too and found many 
exsotic solutions :) than i have found a little how too where i see that
into the start parameter of salsauth into /etc/init.d there was a -r and 
this -r used to indicate that the username can have @ into its name and
now work with and without @.
