[tor-talk] tor running as root on macOS by default

After installing the command line tor executable via the macOS Homebrew package manager as documented here:

and having it start via macOS launchd using the `brew services` manager

I see that `tor` is running as root.

This seems bad.

(the process was started by launchd so the homebrew package is definitely at fault)

It's not clear where to file a bug report (the Tor bug tracker? the Homebrew github?) so hopefully someone on this list can route the issue properly.
