$ openssl x509 -noout -purpose -in cassl/cassl.pem | grep CRL
CRL signing : Yes
CRL signing CA : Yes

Also:

$ openssl crl -in cassl/crl.pem -CAfile cassl/cassl.pem
verify OK
-----BEGIN X509 CRL-----
MII...
...
...VQ=
-----END X509 CRL-----

Hum.. that might be the case...
They must all use 'myhost.mydomain' as CN...
Do you know how to specify different CNs in a common openssl.conf file?
Here's my openssl.conf:

[ ca ]
