Is this a duplicate of bug 495033?

No, that bug is asking for updates in Firefox 3 which is served off the 1.9.0 branch. This bug is asking for updates in Thunderbird 2 which is served off the 1.8.1 branch.

Any news about this topic?

Will it be solved with 2.0.0.23?

The new roots would also be helpful for further SeaMonkey 1.1.x releases.
I just took a look at Thunderbird 2.0.0.23. Aside from some certificates for security devices not being present, I think all the newer certificates are now present on the 1.8 branch due to the NSS upgrade. So I believe this is WFM/fixed by the bug that upgraded it.
Not going to block a Thunderbird 2 release. Might consider a patch, but people who need to use servers with new certs can always upgrade to Tbird3

This didn't happen, and Thunderbird 2 is now no longer supported, so this is wontfix.
