[stunnel-users] Stunnel as windows service doesn't start on restart.

Using Stunnel on several Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 machines (all such 
machines are X64 as the OS is only released as X64).

During August of 2014 I reported in this forum the current version of 
Stunnel would not function as a service under the above OS, even if 
using a delayed start, it might run but it would not work.  I reverted 
to using version 4.35, which did work properly.

Pierre DeLagge was kind enough to provide me with a copy of his patched 
Stunnel 5.02, which I am still using and which is working flawlessly on 
my production servers.  No delayed start required.

I am wondering if Pierre's 5.02 patch has been incorporated into the 
most recently released Stunnel, 5.04?  Has anyone been successful in 
getting the most current version to actually work under the above 
environment without delaying the start of the service?

Just to add a little color and background to the story, I am using the 
native WS2008R2SP1 SMTP server on each machine, in conjunction with 
Stunnel, so as to forward OS event notifications through a gmail account.
