its down to the supplicant to have the option and ability to do
these checks.  Sure, most of them have a 'is cert okay'? option
but if you've chosen to use a public auth then anyone else can 
get a cert signed by that auth and start playing around...which
is a weakness.

I'd certainly recommend using the server name check.... and since
we are discussing Open Source and GPL software etc why not contact
the authors of your favourite GUI for Linux and get the feature
implemented?  The underlying software that they call/use almost
certainly has the ability - the GUI just hasnt got the option
coded into it
