apparently when large botnets start up and link against each other, they could choke on telnet-flood and block each other. (not quite sure which messages do that, maybe ssl debug msgs? simple apparently knows about it)

I think it's not the ssl debug msgs, but the volume of traffic STARTSSL generates between those bots while the bot still considers the connection unauthenticated (and thus might classify the data as flood attempt)
