Thanks for your reply, Emmanuel! The strange thing is, that even for 
"cn", the OID is returned, if I use the eq (=) operator in the leaf. 
Only if I use a substr expression like "cn=Tor*", the name "cn" is returned.

I'll try to isolate this problem and will file a JIRA issue, then.

Thanks again + Greetings from Hamburg,
