     Sometimes it takes several reload attempts to get it to work, though.
It also thoroughly bollixes automatically refreshed pages like the small
GOES East images I like to keep handy and updated to most recent half hour.
Any other automated accesses, such as through curl, wget, et al. are also
screwed when it happens.
     If someone has an idea of how to prove that the problem is in privoxy
and not in tor, I can try to file a bug report there.
