I believe [scrubbed] is the actual string that he is seeing. Tor doesn't
like printing IP addresses when it can help it. :)

In this case, I believe those warnings come from people running Tor
clients or relays on, which had a bug in TLS handshaking.

We left the warning in, in case there was a later bug too. But I think
there isn't. So we will downgrade it to an 'info' level log in the next
release candidate.
