----------------------------------------------

Thanks for the fix, it works now with the BrowserCompatHostnameVerifier.

> I work at a company called info.nl in the Netherlands, so our domain is info.nl. We have
a wildcard certificate in use for several services, *.info.nl.
> The AbstractVerifier has a method acceptableCountryWildcard which checks that you don't
use eg *.co.uk as the wildcard in the certificate. The second to last domain part is checked
against a fixed list, which includes info so our wildcard is not accepted.
> Apparantly there are some countries where info.<countrycode> is seen as a top level
domain but that is not the case for the netherlands. So the check on this is not strict enough
and should also take into account the top level domain.
