Re: PSI patch anti dns-leaking

Thanks for working on this!  The DNS leak issue seems to be a major problem for the project.  My only concern is that there is a reason the Tor developers haven't found a solution yet or decided not to tie it into Tor itself. 

Does any developer [Tor or not] want to comment on this patch?  Maybe someone could explain more about what exactly it does.

Hello everybody
some time ago I submitted a request through the psi flyspry bug tracking
system asking the devs to resolve the dns-leaking problem. Since the
devs seems not to have decided when to fix this bug a good gui, hannes,
has developed a patch that acts as a workaround for the problem. You can
download the patch from here
http://www.opendylan.org/~hannes/XXX/psi-socks-no-dns-leaking.diff . In
tor logs you won't see any message saying tor has been given an host to
resolve but I tested myself the patch sniffing the traffic by wireshark
and I found no dns request.
