Yes, but I expected that if the server certificate was in the
certificate bundle, it would be trusted, just as root certificates don't
need to sign themselves to be trusted. They are trusted for being in the
store. And not-present certificates to be failing validation.
However, it seems to be checking the system certificates regardless of
--ca-certificate pointing to the certificate used by the server or not.
Moreover, pointing --ca-directory to an empty folder doesn't seem to
make a difference, which looks plainly wrong.
