The DNS nexus suggests it might be related to changes I noticed after
upgrading to on Mac OS X 10.5.8.

My host's name does not resolve to an IP address due to a dynamic DNS
failure.  I've no ETR on that (and it might have been the case for months).

tor complains, and logs (at info level or lower) that it's trying
something else.  tor complains also, but then picks an apparently
random address.  This typically fails other checks, so it repeats.  It logs
these "changes" at notice level.

The bug I filed is here:
