This is the nature of a over saturated network.

Actually, I don't think the Tor network is as oversatured as we think.
I think it's just massively unbalanced.

See sections 2 and 4 of

Hidden services seem spotty to me too, but their's not much I can do about
it except try again and be patient.

I think there's a real bug here. I've been playing with it on and off. I
think that when Tor has a rendezvous circuit that it thinks it should
like, and suddenly changes its mind, then it discards that circuit and
starts working on a new one (which is good), but at the same time it
closes the socks stream (which is bad).

Fixing that bug, if it turns out to actually be a bug, would mean that
hidden services are dirt slow when making the initial connection (until
we make Tor itself faster at least), but they're not as flaky as they
currently appear.


Hello Roger
Do you then think that I should put up a bug report ?
