This is regression in 11.3 release. Now is corrected (code pushed to 
repository) and will be part of 12.4.2 release.
With restored functionality X.509 host keys is verified and validated 
before check in known host file.
New model is different then previous (all pre 11.3 release) where x.509 
host key was checked first and then verified and validated.

Thanks for remark,
Roumen Petrov
