At least this was something easy to fix:

I respectfully disagree.  The scenario that I want stunnel to
implement is to run as a service (i.e. also while the user *is not*
logged in), and at the same time to provide the interactive user
interface while the user *is* logged in.  I recognize this scenario
may be irrelevant for your particular use case.
