Thanks for the link C, I did what it suggested vis modifying the
start-tor-browser script, but it ends up just launching another window
of Firefox and not Aurora...

I'd love to be able to start the Tor Browser without Vidalia, since I
already run a copy as a relay, and I don't want it to shut down every
time I close the Tor Browser as well.
