This is probably the issue.

We don't disable TLS 1.0 support (IOW, it's enabled by default), and the
server's SSL library appears antiquated (side note: what software is it
running and, if you know, what SSL library/version?)  We also don't have
a mechanism to allow users to disable TLS 1.0 (either per-connection or

Just to make sure (I can't remember what exactly current versions of
GnuTLS send by default), could you get a packet capture of an attempt to
connect?  This will contain the identifying information about your
