This is caused by a hostname mismatch, according to wireshark:
XMPP Protocol
    eXtensible Markup Language
    [Expert Info (Note/Undecoded): Unknown packet: error]
        [Unknown packet: error]
        [Severity level: Note]
        [Group: Undecoded]

If I specify the correct hostname as with `-xmpphost` of openssl s_client, that works fine:
diff --git a/src/socket.c b/src/socket.c
index b3ed84c5a3..85a27fc6df 100644

I can add a new option to gnutls-cli if it's useful.
