Re: Info message for LDAP_SERVER_DOWN in case of SSL/TLS failure (ITS#1995)

I can see the info message if certificate verification fails 
(turned into a Python exception instance in this example):

ldap.CONNECT_ERROR: {'info': 'error:14090086:SSL 
routines:SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE:certificate verify failed', 
'desc': 'Connect error'}

But is that also true if the certificate and host name comparison 
failed which is a very common error? The following example is from 
the OpenLDAP debug log:

TLS: hostname (abcdef.domain.my) does not match common name in 
certificate (localhost).

In this case the info field seems to be empty:

ldap.CONNECT_ERROR: {'info': '', 'desc': 'Connect error'}

Ciao, Michael.
