I have encountered a couple of issues with stunnel 4.45 on RHEL 5.5.

I tried configuring stunnel to log messages in /var/log/messages and later
found that messages were logged both in that file AND /var/log/messages.

In stunnel.conf, I had specified:

In syslog.conf:
local6.*                                               /var/log/stunnel.log

I could achieve what I wanted only with the combination of the following
two options:

Is this expected?

The second issue I have noticed is that stunnel seems to have a bit of
trouble handling the hup signal. If you start stunnel specifying a relative
path to the config, sending hup will cause stunnel to log and error but it
won't exit.

2012.03.01 16:31:29 LOG5[19000:0]: Reading configuration from file
2012.03.01 16:31:29 LOG3[19000:0]: etc/server.conf: No such file or
directory (2)
2012.03.01 16:31:29 LOG3[19000:0]: Cannot read configuration
2012.03.01 16:31:29 LOG3[19000:0]: Failed to reload the configuration file

If you specify an absolute path, no error will be reported but stunnel will
exit anyway.
