 Do you mean the DistinguishedName fields? Did you try the:
gnutls_x509_crq_get_dn_by_oid() and gnutls_x509_crq_get_dn()?

The functions that you use in your example above are used to set
additional attributes to the certificate request (that have nothing to
do with names -e.g. the challenge password is one of those).
