If TIMEOUTclose value is positive, stunnel does not transmit TCP FIN, even  
though application sends TCP FIN, until timeout time expires  I don't know  
why stunnel designer chose it, maybe because of the performance, or some  
Some of the browsers do not start to display the page until receiving the  
entire packet.  And one of the trigger for the browser to detect to  
receive the whole is TCP FIN.
 From that things, such kind of the problem of yours occurs.
