I got this bug for you guys:

-ChanServ- [#gnu] Welcome to #gnu, the official channel of the GNU Project. Please read and follow
* #gnu :
<Wardt> I got a "GnuTLS error -8: A record packet with illegal version was received." using FTPES. One account works, the other doesn't. Does anyone know what this is and what I can do to fix it?
<jmd> Wardt, First you should report it as a bug to the GnuTLS maintainers since that error message is in breach of the Gnu coding standards.

Furthermore, could you please tell me what the error message means and how I can fix this situation?
