Hi Karsten,

I'm not sure if this works for you, but I "installed" TBB and changed
the Vidalia setting (Settings > Advanced) to not set the ControlPort
automatically. I picked the old standard 9051.

Then I edited the torrc and at least added

I'm also not sure if
is present by default or if I added it. (Could it be SocksListenAddress
is still the default entry?)

If Vidalia won't let you configure its own config from its interface you
can add
to vidalia.conf
