I take this serious. So I entered turn 3 and unified the batch files of my 
test cases. Nothing (DGROOT, version of DG, ...) is hard coded anymore. These 
variables are now taken from a single configuration file, which is sourced. 

And the result is: I can no more reproduce my reported result. In other words, 
DG 9.8.3 shows a certificate verification success with the farther retrieval 
of a certificate in the default location (/etc/ssl/certs).

Unfortunately for at least one I week I will not have the time to track the 
cause of the change. Provided I eventually get insight, which is relevant for 
you as well, I will report again.

Cheers, Monika
