As I understood it, I was using inetd to start the stunnel session to connection 
from 993 to 143.

143 works.  I've already tested that completely.

As a maybe related issue.  If I start stunnel from the /etc/init.d script from 
debian -- it fails calling for a pid= to be defined.  As you can see from my 
conf file, pid= is already defined.
