I believe the previous behaviour was correct,  but this'll help the people who can't read log output that explains in detail what the problem was and how to fix it.

Though it'll now fail in an obscure and annoying way (that doesn't explain exactly what the problem was an how to fix it) when sending Status-Server requests to a non standard accounting port.
