The best I can tell, its not an correct configuration. The NOTES
section says SSL_CTX_use_certificate_chain_file should be preferred,
but its not forbidden. Confer,

Perhaps its best to address the problem rather than attacking the
user. Its OK to disregard the feedback you are getting, but please
don't attack the users.
