Sorry if I'm asking basic questions, I am new to this world.

Am I right in thinking that curl obtained a certificate from the server,
which failed to match up to the one in xpilkeys.pem ?

I thought I was overriding the 'standard' location for the CA cert bundle
by specifying the file holding the certificate? Is that right please?
