I think the proper course of action would be to check whether this
change of OpenSSL's behavior was intentional, and submit a bug report
(or propose a fix) if it wasn't.  Implementing a workaround in stunnel
may potentially cause a memory leak.

Peter: Please let me know if you need my help.

The workaround proposed by Peter (with my small improvement) is:

diff --git a/src/ctx.c b/src/ctx.c
index 9f12ded..c4ef866 100644
--- a/src/ctx.c
+++ b/src/ctx.c
@@ -911,7 +911,10 @@ NOEXPORT void sess_remove_cb(SSL_CTX *ctx,
SSL_SESSION *sess) {
     opt=SSL_CTX_get_ex_data(ctx, index_opt);
         cache_remove(ctx, sess);
+    /* OpenSSL before 1.1.0 does not free the session automatically */

Best regards,
