You have a point here.  My plan for these measurements was to disable
guards which I do for all measurements.  But using a single Tor process for
both client and service means that it will sooner run out of pre-built
circuits.  So maybe it's more realistic to use two separate Tor processes.
 This shouldn't be hard with the redesigned Torperf.

By the way, if you're interested in the current state of the rewrite, see
the perfd branch in https://gitweb.torproject.org/karsten/torperf.git .
 Still far from being complete, but on the right path, I hope.  Contributions
would be cool!
