Yes, I've tried unsuccessfully to supply them. I'm told they're only needed when something (the OS? Perl?) "doesn't know where the certs are located". But I think the key thing is, the connection string, minus those additional SSL options, works fine when I connect using our /usr/bin/perl installation - just not when I connect using my personal v22 installation.
