[stunnel-users] 4.10 Crashes with Multiple Connections

Hi. Just started to use stunnel for NNTP traffic to Giga on a gateway
Linux 2.4 box that sits between Windows and my cable modem. The
NewsReader I use is configured to open 4 connections at the same time.
Downloaded and installed 4.10, then immediately hit the -lpthread
problem. Edited the Makefile, did a "make clean", "make", and "make
install". Tried again. Got an immediate crash. Tried a few more
times. Sometimes it crashed, other times the NewsReader reported one
connection as working, one as connected, but not pulling any data, and
two connections as connecting. So, it looks like everything works with
only one active connection, but it segfaults when 2 or more threads are
pulling data. The problem is, I can't always get it to crash. Plus,
cpu use of stunnel sometimes pegs at 99%, even after closing the
connections, and again this isn't consistent.
When I turn debug on, it has always only used one active connection, so
I don't get the crash. Plus, when debug is on, and I terminate the
connections from the NewsReader, the log file expanded to 18meg in less
than a minute.
I then downloaded and installed 4.9, and this appears to handle the 4
active connections without any problems.
Any suggestions as to what kind of information I should try and collect
