Default Unison Version Conflict

I am setting up a Debian 6 box with unison to sync to a box running Ubuntu 12.04

When trying to run unison I get the following error:

Fatal error: Received unexpected header from the server:
expected "Unison 2.32\n" but received "Unison 2.40\n\000\000\000\000\017",
which differs at "Unison 2.4".
This can happen because you have different versions of Unison
installed on the client and server machines, or because
your connection is failing and somebody is printing an error
message, or because your remote login shell is printing
something itself before starting Unison.

Any ideas?

The Unison version numbers need to match on both sides. The easiest way would be to install unison2.32.52 on the Ubuntu box.


Edit: the best solution would of course be to update Debian to the current stable (Wheezy). Here 2.40.x is the default package.
