[stunnel-users] problem with buffering data on stunnel

I have a problem with transmission from LAN server, which use another
on LAN with running stunnel, to pass encrypted data to remote SSL clients
if they are on very slow GPRS network. If server in LAN starts to transfer
big amount of data to such slow remote client, stunnel is buffering data
slowly transmits them to the GPRS client. TCP Window on connection from LAN
server to stunnel is big (64 - 131kB), and TCP Window on connection from
stunnel to slow client is small (about 5kB). And additionally stunnel is
buffering data. So, server is finishing transmission in seconds, but in
most of data are still in buffers of stunnel. And it makes a timeout
(server is waiting for the confirmation from client if it received all data,
but time between last byte sent from server and confirmation from client
could be even several minutes).
So, stunnel is working in "store and forward" model. Is it possible to
switch it to something like "cut through"? Or how to force stunnel to more
synchronized transmission between client and server?
