[stunnel-users] Delay option

I'm setting up stunnel and I'm facing a problem with dynamic IP-adresses.
Searching google and the man pages I tought that the "delay = yes" option
would solve my problem, but it doesn't seems to.

If I had "delay = yes" to my config file, none of my services seems to work
anymore. If I remove it, everything is working fine, until the the remote-IP
changes, and I have to restart stunnel.

What am I doing wrong ? Or isn't this the right option for this job ?

Stunnel -version :

key             = /usr/local/etc/stunnel/stunnel.pem
pid             = /usr/local/var/stunnel/stunnel.pid
RNDbytes        = 64
RNDfile         = /dev/urandom
RNDoverwrite    = yes
