APT got broken a little bit ago (a week maybe?). 0.3.15 will fix this when it 
appears (patch is in the CVS), though it would be nice if someone could patch 
this into (or some such) and get it in if 0.3.15 is not imminent.

Hmm... Can't help here, telnet works fine.

Have you checked the bug tracking system for ircd? if there isn't anything, 
file this (after you've got your network reliable).
