Well, if the CA cert bundle is good for that server's bundle it gives you
this message as well. The site you're talking to might be self-signed.

Have you done the magic things necessary so that CAPATH works for you on
Windows? AFAIK, it requires that you hack the script that uses symlinks in
the original or something like that.

That certainly seems odd. Have you used the CA options the same way the curl
command line tool does?
