Re: [tor-talk] Bursts of 'many circuit creation requests'

Just out of curiosity: Do you also get
"[notice] cull_wedged_cpuworkers(): Bug: closing wedged cpuworker. Can
somebody find the bug?
[err] cpuworker_main(): Bug: writing response buf failed. Exiting.
[warn] Tried to establish rendezvous on non-OR or non-edge circuit."
after several days of Tor running?
