i lied!

looking back over this i did not set a ORListenAddress.  when i
changed this and tried to reload the config the server died.

i don't know if this is related to the socks listener address change
issue, but it sounds similar.  i tried reproducing the socks problem
but it worked fine with (that is, it correctly closed
the old port, and created a new one bound to the new address)

i tried the ORListenAddress change and the following occurred:
Aug 21 15:41:28.773 [notice] Received reload signal (hup). Reloading config.
Aug 21 15:41:28.774 [notice] Closing no-longer-configured OR listener

For usage, try -h.
Aug 21 15:41:28.774 [warn] Restart failed (config error?). Exiting.

(in the original case i was rebinding to a public IP; the loopback is
just for test, but the same behavior was encountered.)

hope that clarifies things.

best regards,
