try removing or commenting out the DirServer entry from your torrc file (
http://wiki.noreply.org/noreply/TheOnionRouter/TorFAQ#torrc )

it's the second time this problem appears, maybe a default
misconfiguration slip in the unstable packages? (I mean: DirServer looks
really useful if you want to test out an unreleased version in a private
tor network, but it's less useful when the program is released ;-) )
