I didn't go that far to 2.2.6; apprently some other change in DN parsing
tweaked the treatment of unescaped '='; anyway the current behavior is
essentially what was intended at the time the parsing of string
rerpesentations of distinguished names was designed.  The future behavior
is to accept them as input, but escape them as output, as discussed in the
related ITS#2339.
