	Odd, if the proper start scripts are installed to
	/Library/StartupItems, they are called at boot and shutdown.  If
	the start script errors out, that's a different problem.

	The privoxy start script really isn't a full-fledged start
	script.  It's a plain shell script that starts Privoxy, there is
	no "start" nor "stop" functionality.  Fixing this is on my to do

	Otherwise, if in console, sudo -s, can you start Tor manually
	without errors?  "/Library/StartupItems/Tor/Tor start"?
