> and it is not reproducible using openssl s_client

I have determined that s_client is buggy. It will always load the system certs *if and only if* you also pass it a valid custom CA cert (which is the reverse of what's expected).

This is where it happens (in apps/s_client.c):

    if ((!SSL_CTX_load_verify_locations(ctx, CAfile, CApath)) ||
        (!SSL_CTX_set_default_verify_paths(ctx))) {
         * BIO_printf(bio_err,"error setting default verify locations\n");
        /* goto end; */

This is why I forced SSL_CERT_* to empty locations in the examples above, so that only the custom CA bundle is used.
