I'm well aware of this.  Stunnel server should only negotiate DH if ECDH
is not supported by connecting client.  Can you confirm that this is the
case for the client you used for your tests?

The reason I asked you to compare your results with various ciphers was
to find reasonable defaults for the upcoming stunnel 5.00.  8-)
