error with -k (--insecure)

I'm using the Win32 build of curl 7.10.2, and attempting to pull up something off of

They are using what appears to be a self-generated certificate, assigned to, on this site.

As you can guess, curl doesn't care for it too well.

So, I tried using the -k option to turn off certificate checking. However, because curl found a "curl-ca-bundle.crt" file in my path, it seemed to ignore the -k option, and gave me error 35 back ("curl: (35) SSL: error:14090086:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE:certificate verify failed").

Was this bug fixed in 7.10.3? If not, could someone please find the problem and fix it? I'd imagine this would be pretty easy to correct...
