[Pkg-chromium-maint] Bug#807785: chromium: caches certificate chains

Package: chromium
Version: 47.0.2526.73-1
Severity: normal

Chromium can cache certificate chains, which results in some sites that
actually have up-to-date certificates being listed as having invalid
SHA-1 certificates.  While this may be a valid optimization, it should
follow the "as if" rule: the behavior must be exactly as if Chromium
actually validated the entire chain every time.

I encountered this with https://securityheaders.io/.  It caused me and
the maintainer of that site headaches trying to figure out why it was
broken.  Please fix Chromium not to cache certificate chains unless it
can do so correctly every time.
