I have exactly the same issue on raspberry Pi. SSL fails about 50% of
the time. And I don't know how to do remote debug either.

For example, right now I have code that works fine on the desktop, but under Mono it's failing (it's a socket call out to SSL, and yes, I've added a handler for ServicePointManager.ServerCertificateValidationCallback as a test but it still fails).

I would suspect that someone out there has tried debugging against a Raspberry Pi or something and this would be an analogous situation.
