Good to know, now someone needs *only* :-) to write a patch to bail out
with a more helpful error message. A misconfigured port leading to such
an opaque error message is probably not the best of all things.

E.g. something like this at the right place:

except ssl.error, e:
    if repository.getint('port') != 443 and str(e)=='SSL:bla bla':
        raise SyntaxWarning('SSL version could not be detected and '
    'non-standard port %d for SSL configured. Make sure your'
    'configuration is correct.' % repository.getint('port'))

So my plan for next release cycle: IDLE, sqlite, error messages...
