No. #tor on OFTC has a ban on tor users right now, why? This does not
help bug reporters very well. Why not a moderation mode instead of ban?

I've tried everything I can think of, nothing works. Should I revert to
stable until this is fixed? I don't know if I can offer much help.

I can connect to http://duskgytldkxiuqc6.onion/ without a problem, but
others including core.onion, hidden wiki, Freenode's hidden IRC server,
and a few others don't work as they used to. I attempt only known &
verified as working .onion sites from others. Non-fuctional (down)
.onion sites show a different message in terminal unrelated to this bug.

> What does "almost never" mean? How often does it work?

One day I managed to connect to one when I reloaded the site the moment
following the failure message (with (or) 18-alpha), but I
have been unable to reproduce this with the current 19-alpha).

All tries fail.

I download only from download page @ torproject.org, I don't apply
patches myself or use svn.

This information I have not verified from them.

I mentioned a few of them above. I personally have little use for .onion
sites as most of them don't have content interesting to me, but I test
anyway because it is alpha.
