Sorry, I can't say I understood your answer, so let me elaborate on my question:

How I read that code:
for a chain of EE <- intermediate <- CA (self-signed, in trust store, but distrusted through distrust-after). CA is checked to be self-signed, certificate_list gets shortened, CA is excluded from the newly added distrust-after check below, which doesn't seem to be the desired result.

What have I misenterpreted?
