It's a small problem on irc server with TLS. I submitted a bug for gnutls and got answer with fix (by forcing priority): https://savannah.gnu.org/support/index.php?107954

So in WeeChat following commands should let you connect to this server:

/set irc.server.chatspike.ssl_priorities "NORMAL:-VERS-TLS-ALL:+VERS-TLS1.0:+VERS-SSL3.0:%COMPAT"
/set irc.server.chatspike.ssl_dhkey_size 1024
/set irc.server.chatspike.ssl_verify off

I'm trying to connect to ChatSpike IRC network via a SSL connection and I'm getting an error. Weechat 0.3.5 running on Fedora 15 x86_64. Using tmux multiplexer and $TERM=screen-256color

address: irc.chatspike.net/6697
ssl: on
ssl_verify: off

The error returned is:
[12:31]   ChatSpike irc: connecting to server irc.chatspike.net/6697 (SSL)...
[12:31]   ChatSpike =!= irc: TLS handshake failed
[12:31]   ChatSpike =!= irc: error: A TLS packet with unexpected length was received.
[12:31]   ChatSpike irc: reconnecting to server in 10 seconds

I am able to connect to this network via SSL using a different client.

I was able to connect to the network before in weechat, I believe via SSL, but after quiting, /quit, and then restarting I am now getting the aforementioned error.
