I don`t think I could help you with something, as I said I am not so
very tech specialist, but I will do what I can as I researching. BTW, I
found something similar, you may have a look:

Yes, I meant just what described. Since 2007 TB became something more
than bunch of programs that can be configured and run searately
without any worries about security leaks.

But now when I want to do something unusual, I always think of Mike
Perry`s recent statement:  "In fact, if we ever see headlines about a
Tor user compromised, my money is on it being due to that user having
used a custom or obsolete config." (c)

I understand that, but it doesn`t matter when anonimity (hiding your
real IP as most important part of it) is more important than privacy.

Yes, it is what I meant.

Well, I think it is not that developers should worry about :) Not even
in top-10 or top-100. It is more likely that some smart-ass would scare
everyone with such words as "child abuse" and "terrorism" in the
context of average Tor user.
