See below; I believe I've found the reason for the "Bad request"
response, and you need to do something more to get it to work.

OK, so there's another thing. If you tell cURL or your application to
send an HTTP request to 127.0.0.1:19201, then it will send a request
with a "Host: 127.0.0.1" header, and omgeo.net's Akamai front-end will
not know which backend server to route it to. So both cURL and your
application must be convinced to send a request that has
a "Host: ctm.omgeo.net" header.
The simplest way to do this is somewhat error-prone, not quite
future-proof, but it may work for the present. Add "ctm.omgeo.net" to
the 127.0.0.1 line in your hosts file (/etc/hosts on a Unix-like system,
%WINDOWSDIR%\system32\etc\hosts on a Windows system, I believe), and
configure stunnel to connect to 184.108.40.206:443, not ctm.omgeo.net:443.
This last part - hardcoding the IP address of the server - is the part
that is error-prone and not future-proof, since omgeo.net (or Akamai) may
decide to change that address at any time and things will stop working.
There is a hackish solution - write a little tool that performs a real DNS
lookup and, if the IP address has changed, regenerates the stunnel config
and restarts stunnel, then run this tool every minute or so... Still,
it worked for me:
[roam at straylight /etc/stunnel]$ fgrep -e ctm.omgeo.net /etc/hosts
127.0.0.1 localhost ctm.omgeo.net
[roam at straylight /etc/stunnel]$ curl -v http://ctm.omgeo.net:19201
* Rebuilt URL to: http://ctm.omgeo.net:19201/
* Trying 127.0.0.1...
* TCP_NODELAY set
* Connected to ctm.omgeo.net (127.0.0.1) port 19201 (#0)

...so that's a start.
