     Yes, I know, but I should think that only a small part of those changes
would have used/been related to clock functions.  Were clock-related changes
made in many separate commits between and

     Not at the moment.  I wasn't aware of until after was available at the web site, so I never downloaded it.  If you
can tell me where to pick up a copy of it, I can give it a shot.

     Maybe.  It will depend upon whether I can successfully install
subversion and then find the time to figure out how to use it.  The former
may not be a problem.  One never knows with the ports subsystem in FreeBSD
until one attempts to install/upgrade a port or package.  That subsystem is
wonderful when it works right, but unfortunately it seems to be the only
truly fragile part of FreeBSD.  The latter depends upon what else I have
going on at the time.

     Yes, of course.

     It's not really a problem for me.  I just don't like running a tor
server that creates problems for anyone running circuits through it. still runs reliably and doesn't hallucinate clock jumps that
cause it to kill all existing TCP connections, even if it has some inoperative
features regarding hidden services.
