Re: Undeciperable message...

Replying to a couple of messages here, but:

No, I never made any manual changes to my local Tor config
at all. This was a "dynamic" event.

I'm running:

Vidalia: 0.0.14

Usually works great, was just curious about this one message.

If you ever wrote that node down specifically, e.g. in your torrc file,
then it means what Karsten N just described. You can't specify a node
just by its nickname and expect it to be unique.

If you haven't ever touched your config file and you're wondering why
this message came out of the blue, it may be the recurrence of an old
bug we had with Vidalia doing lookups on Tor servers in the background.

Please let us know which it is. :)
