It looks like when multiple NSS databases are initialized using NSS_InitContext() the nicknames can take multiple forms depending on order of initialization. Using the multinit program and three NSS certificate databases with identical nicknames I saw the following names associated:

(first initialized) Server-Cert
(second initialized) NSS Certificate DB:Server-Cert
(third initialized) NSS Application Token 00000005:Server-Cert

Is this expected/dependable behavior?

It sorta looks like with that third initialization it also has each of the previous two nicknames as well.

It seems like rule of thumb is that using multiple databases with the same nicknames is a terrible idea and unpredictable, just looking for confirmation.
