Now I'm facing a different problem.
Tor server says: Self-testing indicates your ORPort is reachable
from the outside. Excellent. Publishing server descriptor.

However, starting a tor client with my own server as EntryNodes
gives a warning from add_nickname_list_to_smartlist() that my server
is "known but down".

The reason seems to be that my $HOME/.tor/cached-directory does not
get updated appropriately.  It contains an old IP address for my
server.  When deleting the file and restarting the client, it works.

(In addition, $DataDirectory/cached-directory also contains an old
IP address.)

Any ideas?
