I now realise that the same root certificate is included in 
/etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt, so maybe I shouldn't need to specify 
it? Perhaps what I want is an "intermediate certificate"? Would that be 
the same thing as a "local issuer certificate"?

Also, I no longer able to reproduce the case where I got "Failed to load 
root certificates".

Let's say I'm officially confused...
