Package: gnome-online-accounts
Version: 3.4.2-1
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

Dear all,

currently gnome-online-accounts is completely unusable. WHat I do and did:

* first trial to create a google account:
	SSL handshake failed
* search the internet, update-ca-certificates, I actually did:
  - check mail.google.com, contacts.google.com for the certificate
    they use, Thawte
   - activate all the THawte related certificates, plus some others more
   - run update-ca-certificate (as root)
* retry acount creation, this time we come to the place where g-o-a
  shows me the google login page
* enter google credentials
* come to the page: allow "GNOME" to access bla bla bla
* click on "Grant access"
* And here we go
	Error creating account
	Error getting identity: SSL handshake failed

First remark: DOn't tell me to activate ALL certificates, because
this will break exim smtp delivery (yeah, it is a pain with certificates)

Second remark: THawte should be enough, and it is accepted

Third remark: log out and log in to a new gnome session didn't help

So, to sum up, broken, completely broken.

No logs, no warning/errors in .xsession-errors.
