In this case it may be that the stunnel is collapsing.  It could be
good to turn up the verbosity on stunnel, if possible.  Failing that
perhaps try attaching to it with 

  # strace -p PIDOFSTUNNEL -o /tmp/stunnel.trace

to see whether it exits or seems to get an error.

The command and config file look OK.
