The dn comparison rules are a long sad story. Gnutls has followed the simple approach to compare dn for simple equality and that works in practice very well - noone complained since our first days. Note however that what you describe above is incorrect even according to rfc5280 comparison rules. Which implementation created that certificate? Have you reported that issue to them? https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5280#section-7.1
