Right. The problem is that you can't configure hibernation plus pick a
low-numbered port currently.

See https://bugs.torproject.org/flyspray/index.php?do=details&id=918
for details -- in Tor 0.2.1.x, we've added a warning during boot that
you've chosen two incompatible config choices. For later versions of
Tor, we hope to have a smarter answer.

For now, the workaround is to either not configure hibernation, or to
pick a port above 1023.
