I ran into this too; the stack size is too small. Run one of these 
commands first:

tcsh: ulimit stacksize 2048

sh: ulimit -s 2048

Mac OS X's default is 512, I picked 2048 at random.

ssh has an -N flag that will replace that while loop.

I have found, in my one day of using ssh tunnels + pop3proxy ,that my 
ssh tunnels will go down (due to the computer going to sleep or my 
internet connection being flakey) more often than pop3proxy.py does 
(due to me closing it). So, perhaps the command is better spawned 
when the proxy can't connect to the server. Just a thought...
