Ok, I applied the patch.

I'm not sure, _gnutls_x509_get_dn_oid contains this code:
len = strlen (oid) + 1;
if (*sizeof_oid < (unsigned) len)
*sizeof_oid = len;
memcpy (_oid, oid, len);
*sizeof_oid = len - 1;
Which indicate that the intention is to copy the terminating zero.
However, it may be that the call to asn1_read_value did not add a zero.
That may be a bug, typically asn1_read_value do zero-terminate strings
if I recall correctly (although it isn't well documented either).
