[Mono-list] Certificate validation in HttpWebRequest

I do access some websites on HTTPS URLs using the HttpWebRequest class. To 
handle the certificates I set the  
System.Net.ServicePointManager.ServerCertificateValidationCallback to an 
implementation of mine. This worked fine, but recently (to be precise: since 
updating from mono-2.10 to 3.2.8) I get the old "System.Net.WebException: 
Error getting response stream (Write: The authentication or decryption has 
failed.)" error again. My callback is actually never called.

I found a hint on a MS page 
that appearently this is expected behaviour for Windows RT and Windows Store 
Has the behaviour of that callback been altered in mono? Is that a bug?
