The pkcs9 email attribute is already defined in cosine.schema. I have this
included in my test configs so I never noticed a problem here.

Ah, I was wondering what was going to happen here. As far as I had seen, the
OpenSSL tools were very sloppy with 8-bit DNs so I assumed they would not be
used. (There are frequent emails on the OpenSSL lists asking for help
them to work, so I assume most people can't/don't.)

I have ldap_t61s_to_utf8s() in libldap which can be used to address this
problem, but it still won't produce the intended result for your DN. Your
Latin-1 (ISO 8859-1) xFC (Latin small letter U with diaeresis - u umlaut) is
not correct for the T.61 Teletex definition. In T.61 xFC is the small
Icelandic thorn character.
Basically your DN is improperly constructed; xC8x55 is the correct T.61
sequence for (Latin small letter U with diaeresis - u umlaut).

So, even if ldap_X509dn2bv() was honoring the type field (which I believe it
needs to do) your DN is corrupt and will still be corrupt after UTF8
