     It doesn't look like mine, either.

     Right, and the "learned more info" message looks like:

Nov 04 21:50:42.351 [notice] I learned some more directory information, but not enough to build a circuit.

The message above doesn't say anything about having only so many out of so many
more descriptors.

     Maybe he could take another look.  I still have a info-level log file
saved in case he or you would like some or all of it.  Another difference
is that the "no longer up-to-date" message only occurs at most once per
execution of tor, the startup messages notwithstanding.  The example in the
bug report mentioned above shows that message repeating only a few minutes
after the first problem occurrence.
