Okay, I take that back.  I just tried sticking tcpserver in in place of stunnel
and my patch works.  I can login and update.  Therefore this is almost 
certainly a
bug in stunnel - the CVS code is good.

P.S. the following script is necessary to use tcpclient with the patch:

address@hidden ccvs-ssl]$ cat
#! /bin/sh
cat <&6 &
cat >&7

tell tcpclient to exec  This turns the 'tcpclient hostname port sh
`pwd`/' call into a straight socket pipe which is what I wrote the CVS 
to require.
