Ok,
Anyway it may be "normal" depending on your log level of stunnel and the 
limits you have set up for the logger.

If I were you, and wherever possible I would at least suppress any log 
from stunnel, and/or stop it temporarily,
and then I would wait to see if any other log can lead to that kind of 
message :

I think that Jochen Bern gave the right direction :
this msg is just a logger throughput warning.

It is too soon to say it reveals any pb in stunnel in itself.

Anyway, you should check also your firewall logs (iptables or anything 
else), to see if you have not some abnormal traffic rejected in high 
amount with a lot of alerts :
in that case, it may reveal some spyware on one of your LAN machines.

Do that BEFORE imagining to increase your alert limits thresholds.
If that situation is recent, it is worth trying to understand what kind 
of applications and/or traffic generated it (stunnel may be just being a 
little part of it).

Regards
Pierre
