ok, while *online* isn't yet supported, it can works if it finds a local copy
of the CRL installed (same for offline). This means that I can get everything
working with the original source code if the configuration is right.

Subject: CN=www.google.com, O=Google Inc, L=Mountain View, S=California, C=US
Subject: CN=Thawte SGC CA, O=Thawte Consulting (Pty) Ltd., C=ZA
Subject: OU=Class 3 Public Primary Certification Authority, O="VeriSign, Inc.",

This requires to
(a) changes to machine.config for MD2 (see previous comments)
(b) downloading the intermediate CA CRL (URL is available in the google cert)
    wget http://crl.thawte.com/ThawteSGCCA.crl
(c) install the CRL into the CA store
    certmgr -add -crl CA c:\temp\ThawteSGCCA.crl
(d) downloading the root CA CRL (URL is available inside the Thawte cert)
    wget http://crl.verisign.com/pca3.crl
(e) install the CRL into the Trust store
    certmgr -add -crl Trust c:\temp\pca3.crl

Once you know the url it's possible to create a script to update them, since
they have an expiration date.

Don't you love PKIX simplicity ? I can't imagine the joys of the full x.509
feature set ;-)
