[tor-talk] Question about Circuit Building


I was logging some traffic from the Orweb browser on Android (to check for
DNS leaks) and noticed that 5 different Tor relay IP addresses were being
contacted. I was curious if this represents 5 different possible circuits
with some being marked as unused, or alternatively if some of these IPs
were actually hops in the Tor circuit (beyond the first).

I ask because my initial conception would be that you wouldn't want to be
able to see each IP in the Tor circuit you are using as because then
someone could identify the exit node you are using. I am just curious if
anyone could clarify this point.
