I don't believe that's still the error message for trying to connect
without SSL support. The error message should now be along the lines
of "You need SSL support and don't have it."

This error message may come up if you have a SASL library installed
but don't have the SASL plain authentication type. I've seen that
happen at least once.

You should totally get a backtrace and report that.
