I made some substantial reachability fixes in the upcoming
stable release. Many packages and such are available for it already on
the Tor download page (I'll be officially announcing it in a day or two

No, restarting Tor each time should not be needed. Please put your energy
into helping me fix bugs rather than just working around them. :)
