Yes, setting this here in this low-level part of `open-tls-stream' is
just not a good idea.

The changelog just says

+2009-02-07  Dave Love  <address@hidden>
+
+       * tls.el (open-tls-stream): Don't query killing process.
+

which isn't very helpful, but looking at the code, I think I can
understand why it's doing this.  `open-tls-stream' needs (in some error
cases) to kill off the process/buffer it's created, and create a new
one.  In these error cases, having the user prompted is a bug.  I
think.  Possibly.  Although I can't quite see why, really.

But that's what should be fixed, and the
`set-process-query-on-exit-flag' shouldn't be done.  I'll see whether I
can dig up the original bug report to see what the real problem was...
