1. I don't think there's a problem to add the new path to the current existing

2. Doesn't seem clear to me, from reading
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=761503#c12 if this is still an
issue or not... but seems it's not, is it?

3. Also don't think there's a problem with adding this, but a patch would be
appreciated, of course. Anyway from RFC 2818 section 3.1:
If the client has external information as to the expected identity of
the server, the hostname check MAY be omitted [...]
So I think hostname check should not be done after prompting certificate
prompt, as the user has already validated it (otherwise could faild leading to
a new prompt and user annoyance ;-)
