If CERT_CompareRDN finds an attribute type in the first RDN that is not 
also present in the second RDN, it returns SECEqual, which signifies that
the two names matched.  

This bug was introduced in rev 1.21 of secname.c, which was a fix for 
Bug 210584.  It affects only the trunk.

One-line patch forthcoming.

Correction:  The checkin comment was wrong.  The bug introduced in rev 1.21
was a consequence of a fix for bug 372242.
