I've tested the fix and it works fine. But it only addresses the cause
of segfault - missing cn's in the list of attributes.

Still, it could be more safe to safeguard either sorting functions
against invalid arguments or, maybe, even wrap strcacecmp() in the
libreplace, so we get expected behaviour of the function. I think,
the same problem is applicable to strcmp() under FreeBSD also.

Just a thought.

With regards,
