Why the cryptic file names? And why do I need a second 0726b466.r1 file?
Using TLS_CRLCHECK    peer instead of TLS_CRLCHECK    all does not
change the behavior.

And is OpenSSL CRL supposed to work? This is OpenLDAP 2.4.33

it is standard openssl behavior to load certs from CERTHASH.0 and crls from CERTHASH.r0

You can generate the hash from a certificate using "openssl x509 hash"

    ck@pohjola: {112} openssl x509 -noout -hash -in CA.cert

You generally set a symlink from the hash to your certificate and crl using

    ln -s CA.cert `openssl x509 -noout -hash -in CA.cert`.0
    ln -s CA.crl  `openssl x509 -noout -hash -in CA.cert`.r0

This logic is buried somewhere deep inside openssl and is activated when
you configure the CA directory instead of explicit certs.
