Back to 0.2.0.31 or so. Tor-0.2.1.7-alpha IS broken.
I don't run Tor-0.2.1.7-alpha but this fix from Tor-0.2.0.32 may work
I ran into this error with 0.2.0.32 and found it was caused by the init
script for Tor doing an 'su' to the $toruser and then passing the user
and group options when starting Tor. I removed the user and group
options when Tor is started and it now works fine. It seems the $toruser
does not have sufficient permissions to change the programs group.
Removing the 'su' call would also likely work but I have not tried it.
