Interesting. This looks like a bug. You're not supposed to see warnings
like that. Can you give us details -- what Tor version, what Vidalia
version (I assume that's what you mean by "the English version"),
what torrc options you picked, any other warnings you get, etc?

Are there situations that make the warnings always show up?

Can you narrow down what causes the warnings to show up and what doesn't?

Those look plausible.
