All of the directory authorities crashed between 2011-03-06T10:00 and
2011-03-06T11:00 UTC.  Newly started Tor clients will not work until
the directory authorities are running again.

The message Vidalia displays is "Authenticating to Tor", and it means
that Vidalia has not yet connected to the control port of your Tor
client.  Tor clients never authenticate themselves to the Tor network.
