[stunnel-users] PPID of child process

Right, the PPID of the parent process should be always 1.
However, it sounds to me the PPID of the child processes should be the stunnel parent PID.
With my example, if I kill PID 10764, all the stunnel processes will be gone.
So I expect that's the parent, then the others should have PPID "10764". Isn't it?
