Alright, looks like the issue has been resolved.  Still working on figuring out how it happened, but at least everything is back up as expected.

Before responding to this thread I sent out emails to all the sysadmins I know of who might have more information about this.  Hopefully we already have the good cert somewhere, and all we need to do is deploy it (you can see that all the other Tizen domains are using post-heartbleed certificates). I'm also working on getting to the bottom of how this could have happened, because we had some pretty solid (and conservative) procedures in place to make sure this wouldn't happen.

Best case scenario is that we already have this cert lying around, and just didn't deploy it due to some mix up.  If that's the case, the issue will likely be fixed within a minute or two of when my email gets read.  Worst case (which I doubt), it might be a few days while we get a new cert issued.

To clear up some mystery here.  We are definitely revoking and re-rolling all of our keys as a safety measure due to the recent heartbleed bug.  We had everything patched within hours of when the fixes were available, but we, like the rest of the world are in the process of reissuing, replacing, and revoking everything, but I'm surprised that we would have revoked a cert before we replaced it.  It's a long and manual process, and I'm sure StartSSL is being overwhelmed with revocation requests.

The reason that Chrome etc still works is because they scrapped their CRL/OCSP code recently, and moved to a static, and regularly updated list of revoked certificates.  I'm betting that if we don't put in a new cert soon, Chrome will get the revocation in its next update, and it will stop working there too.

I found a dumb way to work around this problem. Mapping crl.startssl.com<http://crl.startssl.com> and ocsp.startssl.com<http://ocsp.startssl.com> to in /etc/hosts works for me.

By the way, it seems odd that s_client doesn't inform that server certificate is revoked. I tried passing "-crl_check -crl_check_all" options, but it didn't cause any certificate error.
