Slackware -current: irssi and the CA-certs


I am pretty new to -current but enjoying it immensely . A small problem has surfaced for me that I cannot sort out, making an SSL connection to Freenode wih irssi. Under 13.0 this was simply a matter of pointing irssi at rworkman's ca-certs package with the following in $HOME/.irssi/config:

    address = "";
    chatnet = "Freenode";
    port = "7000";
    use_ssl = "yes";
    ssl_verify = "yes";
    autoconnect = "yes";
    ssl_capath = "/etc/ssl/certs";
But on-current with the default ca-certs package installed this no longer works:

08:57 -!- Connecting to [] port 7000
08:57 -!- warning Could not verify SSL servers certificate: unable to get local issuer certificate
08:57 -!- warning   Subject : /OU=Domain Control Validated/OU=Gandi Standard Wildcard SSL/CN=*
08:57 -!- warning   Issuer  : /C=FR/O=GANDI SAS/CN=Gandi Standard SSL CA
08:57 -!- warning   MD5 Fingerprint : F8:40:2C:D9:D6:46:1F:D0:38:5D:ED:21:69:8B:17:C4
08:57 -!- Connection lost to
Is anybody else having this trouble? Edit: I have dug a little further and I can make a clean ssl connection by reverting to rworkman's ca-certificates-20090814-noarch-1_rlw.txz package. I shall diff the two scripts and hopefully see the problem...

Hmmm... looks like the problem was an irssi configuration issue which I have solved. Sorry for the noise .
