fetchmail stuck in infinite loop

Since yesterday my fetching of mail suddenly don't work. I normally run fetchmail in daemon mode to fetch my mail, but now I tested to run it from the command line. I get the following result:

[~$] fetchmail -v -u username -p POP3 --auth password
Enter password for
fetchmail: 6.2.0 querying (protocol POP3) at tis 17 feb 2004 15.09.50: poll started
fetchmail: POP3< +OK POP3 v7.61 server ready
fetchmail: POP3> CAPA
fetchmail: POP3< -ERR Unknown AUTHORIZATION state command
fetchmail: Unknown AUTHORIZATION state command
fetchmail: Repoll immediately on
fetchmail: POP3< +OK POP3 v7.61 server ready
fetchmail: POP3> CAPA

...and so it continues until I ctrl+C. Anyone knows what this is about?
