replying here since I have no account in Pidgin' trac.

FileZilla seems to suffer from this problem as well if linked against
GnuTLS 2.8.1, it's now too getting the "Bad record MAC" alert.
It happens on almost all file uploads, especially if enabling a speed
limit in FileZilla's settings.

FileZilla's pull/push too return EAGAIN quite often, especially with
speed limits enabled.

I'll try building a version of GnuTLS with
