Re: More info on my own tor problems

I can look but don't think that could be the issue.  I don't start tor as a 
service when I boot, I manually start it (via Tork or Vidalia).  If I don't 
start tor up via script in the rc directories, how could such a script have 
any effect on tor started on command?
