Filing a new issue from a recent comment in Bug 17397:
"We are observing the same symptoms- httpclient failing to load only in release
mode calling HTTPS service. What is worse, in our setup it is silently failing
with no logcat output of exceptions. 
We are using Xamarin.Android"

Could you please provide a code snippet or project that reproduces the failure you're seeing here? We have made some changes to our web/http stack in 4.12.4 and would very much like to help get to the bottom of this issue!

In the attempt to re-create the issue in a separate project we have found the root cause to be internal issue.
