Re: active connections when hibernating

Hours? Possibly. They'll stay open until the other side closes them,
as I understand; that's one hour by default.

Days? No, that's not, as I understand, supposed to happen.
Heck, if I shut down my or-port (so no new connections arrive), and
turn it off in my browser (so no new outgoing connections are made),
then my tor winds up with no sockets open in about 2 hours. (Maybe
less, I haven't checked that frequently)

The AccountingMax bytes were exceeded, so it transports no traffic.

Well, but those timeouts shouldn't last hours or days, IMHO.
