Hibernation is actually a two-step process. The first step is that it
hits the "soft hibernation limit", .95*AccountingMax, at which point
it stops allowing new connections and new circuits. Then when it hits
AccountingMax it kills all the remaining connections.

Perhaps your Tor was still in the 'soft limit' stage?

If somebody wants to track down some memory leaks, that would be good.
I think there may be some in 0.1.2.x that need finding.
