You're wrong.  Stunnel uses threads instead of processes.  Each thread of a 
process uses the same memory region.  It's a common confusion, because Linux 
2.4 threads look just like processes in the output of "ps" command.  It's 
not stunnel that eats up your memory.

BTW: Please upgrade your stunnel.

Best regards,
