Re: Tor on OSX Tiger problems

I haven't seen this behavior under Tiger.  Did anything go wrong during
the install of Tor + Privoxy?  Have you upgraded to Tiger or fresh
format and install?

Either way, it sounds like the install of Tor+Privoxy is broken in
various ways.  Perhaps a re-install off a fresh DMG?
