Problem with POP, STLS and Pegasus Mail?

last year we switched our students over to Cyrus and this Saturday we added 
professors and staff. Everything went pretty smoothly, but as always we 
have noticed a few problems. One of these happens when users of Pegasus 
Mail try to use POP with STLS. Apparently this happens:

[*] Connection established to
>> 0132 +OK Cyrus POP3 v2.2.12-Invoca-RPM-2.2.12-
1.ZAIK server ready <3728502298.1114460064 at>
<< 0006 STLS
>> 0034 -ERR Nicht unterstützter Befehl.
<< 0014 USER xxx
>> 0055 -ERR [AUTH] USER command only available under a layer

Now I have no idea why the error message following STLS is in German. It 
says "command not supported". When I try this with telnet, it looks fine:

+OK Cyrus POP3 v2.2.12-Invoca-RPM-2.2.12-1.ZAIK 
server ready <303467979.1114461982 at>
+OK Begin TLS negotiation now

Has anybody else seen this?

Thanks, Sebastian
