I'm not sure why a v4 client would have errors... James or George might be able to shed some light.

There's a special handler on the website that takes traffic from old v4 clients and emulates what the old server side code used to do. Whenever possible, I'd recommend updating the client anyway. You'll benefit from any updates in the code itself whether it was fixing something or improving performance.
FYI, it looks like other v4 clients are still connecting okay so it might be something else, possibly related to the change in IP address that took place last week.

Try to ping www.mersenne.org from the affected machine and make sure it comes up with the correct IP address of 107.155.126.203. Also make sure the old clients don't have any proxies configured that could affect how they communicate with the server. With a proxy, your machine might get the right IP address just fine, but the proxy could be hanging on to an old one.
