From memory, that documentation is based on 'unsubstantiated rumour'.

In fact, the only potential issue I have seen actually verified was that you
do have to mess about setting up the certificates for CAPATH as files named
after their certificate hash keys (as you described earlier).

Openssl comes with a makefile to do this, but that specific script depends on
symlinks and perl, which may be difficult for windows. If you are
prepared/able to set this up 'manually' (or with some other script), then
certainly, I know no reason it shouldn't work...
