poll() call uses a negative parameter value to indicate an infinite timeout. 
On some systems (like Linux) any negative value is accepted, while some 
other systems (like FreeBSD or HP-UX) require -1 here.

On affected systems stunnel starts an infinite loop and does not accept any 
connections.  I'm not sure if OpenBSD is affected.

Best regards,
