Are you saying the Tor software itself (as opposed to Vidalia or some
such) attempts to configure routers it discovers?  W/o prompting?  Is
that a good idea?  If I am understanding correctly that sounds like that
could cause problems and quite possibly get users of the software upset
after they get a nasty surprise.

Am I correct that disabling UPnP on the router is sufficient to defeat this?
