I have yet to find a proper way to deal with multiple users with the
same details. I can only advise trying to get it to work off e-mail
addresses alone if the addresses are different in each domain. You would
have to strip down attr_match_list to just the e-mail address, or to
just one other piece of information about the user, but with uids and
e-mails you need to be careful 'cause RT still needs to make sure all
its internal users can be uniquely identified.

It's tricky, what more can I say?
Kind Regards,
