The most helpful thing from my point of view would be to try to figure
out whether there's any pattern to the failures.  Are some versions of
Tor broken for DNS lookups?  If so, that's the problem we should try
to fix first.  If you can identify any servers that fail on lookups
particularly often, that would be a great place to start.
