This looks to me like a problem caused by Polipo's configuration in the
Tor bundle you are using -- specifically, I suspect that Polipo dropped
the Referer header on at least one request, and possibly all of the
requests in this loop.

The proper place to report this bug would be as a Trac ticket on
<https://trac.torproject.org/> in the âTor bundles/installationâ
component, but we plan to remove Polipo from as many of our bundles as
possible as soon as possible, so we might just ignore a Trac ticket for
this issue.
