[stunnel-users] stunnel generating defuncts

Hi there!

I'm using stunnel as client with SuSE SLES 8. 

Usually after several days working OK (up to two weeks) it begins to
generate defunct processes for every transfer.

At first, stunnel version was 3.14 (the one that comes out of the box
with SLES 8), but now I have downloaded an compiled 3.26 and it just
happens the same.

killing stunnel won't help, since relaunching it again turns on
generating defuncts. Situation does not come back to normal until
rebooting the server.

Any hint on this issue?

Thanks in advance,

Serxio Barral.
