Well, there can be any number of CNs in a DN. But only the

Then something (OpenSSL?) is broken. The hostname which succeeded is in the topmost of his RDNs which has a CN, not in the most inferior RDN.

Hm, good point. The OpenSSL function used in libldap/tls.c doesn't have an argument to specify which CN to return. That code may need to be rewritten.
