Oops, just saw that nobody had answered this.  That info message is a
bit misleading; "too old" in the message should really be something
more like "unsuitable".  For the full ugly details, check out
connection_or_group_set_badness() and connection_or_is_better() in
connection_or.c.  Some reasons you might get that message is if the
older connection is canonical and the new one isn't, or if the older
one has circuits and the new one has gone 15 minutes but gotten no
circuits.  I'll fix that info message in 0.2.2.x.
