Re: An olg bug in new tor-package

I get the same message with that version (Tor v0.2.1.25), on Mac OS 10.5.2 ppc
What I've written below is also new to my Tor experience:
Vidalia connects very quickly for me, which is strange since the country in which I live, the internet is slow, spotty and connections can be short, even when not using Tor. In fact, Vidalia's message log never completes telling me what's happening when it is initially building a circuit for connection to the Tor network.
It's just, suddenly I'm connected.
However, when I went to -  check.torproject.org - ,it tells me I am not using a Tor node and am not using Tor to connect to the internet!  How come?
I used to regularly do several IP checks after I had enabled Torbutton and connected with Vidalia,  but after the IP returns were the same IP's,  and from different days and sessions, Andrew told me that habits tend to stick out to any kind of adversary, so I stopped.
But, how can I now trust that I am indeed safe, in the Tor network after Vidalia says I am and Tor check says I'm  not?

Subject: An olg bug in new tor-package

My OS - Debian Lenny AMD64, Tor v0.2.1.25, openssl  0.9.8g-15+lenny6
I have the next record in the log of Tor:
OpenSSL OpenSSL 0.9.8g 19 Oct 2007 [90807f] looks like it's older than
0.9.8l, but some vendor
s have backported 0.9.8l's renegotiation code to earlier versions. I'll
set SSL3_FLAGS just to be safe.
