For all those that are experiencing this, it would be great to get debug
logs starting from when you start your Tor server, running Tor,
until a ways after you find yourself reachable or several hours pass

The phenomenon as I understand it is that you start your Tor server,
and nearly all testing circuits fail, and eventually one maybe succeeds
after a half hour or an hour, for reasons I haven't figured out yet;
then when your IP address changes, you're back to square one, at best.

I need more data. You can send them to be via personal mail
(compressed). Posting them publically is probably not a good plan.
