Many thanks for that; it clears it up.  I think I'll leave that check for
multiple RDN attributes in my script though, because around here they're
the result of user error.  Although, come to think of it, they weren't
"cn" attributes, but custom ones...  Maybe I'd better parse the schema
after all.
