Ouch.  When I read Damian's e-mail, I realized that I should have
updated the FreeBSD port of stunnel to the 4.22b2 version a couple of
days ago, when you (Luis) reported the problem and Michal announced it.
I started working on the FreeBSD port update a couple of hours ago,
but you managed to sneak this e-mail before I was done :)

Damian, I just committed the update to stunnel-4.22.b2 (yep, funny
versioning schemes and such) to the FreeBSD Ports Collection; could you
try to update your ports tree and see if the logging fix in the new
version works for you?  It seems to work just fine here.

Sorry for not getting the fix into the Ports Collection earlier -- and
thanks to Michal for the quick release of this beta, and thanks to Luis
for the response to Damian :)
