----- Forwarded message from Bryan Donlan <bd at fushizen.net> -----

Version: 3:4.21-1

With the following configuration:
output = /srv/stun/log
compression = zlib
CApath = /srv/stun/keys
cert = /srv/stun/server.pem
connect = localhost:9999
verify = 3

The following is output on stderr:
2008.01.10 02:54:19 LOG5[11786:3083495088]: Peer certificate location /srv/stun/keys

This confuses clients when stunnel is driven direcly from xinetd. This
output, if it is produced at all, should be placed in the log file.

----- End forwarded message -----

The issue is that verify_init (verify.c:103) calls

  s_log(LOG_NOTICE, "Peer certificate location %s", section->ca_dir);

apparently before the logfile is setup. Could the log file
initialization be moved earlier in the starup sequence? Or maybe this
log call's severity could be lowered.
