permalink bzr: generic bzr smart protocol error

In case anybody stumbles across this error while trying to use bzr...
$ bzr push bzr+ssh://server/bzr/project/trunk
bzr: ERROR: Generic bzr smart protocol error: bad protocol marker "error\x01Generic bzr smart protocol error: bad request u'bzr request 2'\n"

My client was running:
$ bzr version
Bazaar (bzr) 1.3.1

Yet the server I was pushing to was running Debian Etch and so had:
$ bzr version
Bazaar (bzr) 0.11.0

Updated bzr on the server from the repository with this package and it started working.

Back to understanding how to use the damn program.
