OK, I changed mine to that.  No help.

I removed that line.  No difference.

I put this in a .authinfo file.  Same behaviour.

I know it supports SSL, as I am using it with Thunderbird over SSL.

I just tried to, in the .authinfo file, and in .emacs (separately, not both at
once), tell it to use port 25 (so no encryption), but Emacs still uses
starttls and on port 465.

TLS has been succeeded by SSL, has it not?  And isn't GNUTLS considered
inferior to OpenSSL?  (I really don't know, I've just heard this around the
Internet, but haven't confirmed any of this.)

If I just let it run for a while this is shown in the *Messages* buffer:
Opening STARTTLS connection to `'...done
[several minutes pass]
smtpmail-send-command: Process SMTP not running

I'm also using Emacs22.2.1, and I tried Emacs23, but had the exact problem.
