There are two errors here:

  - The above error message is totally useless.  Future versions of
    libevent should give a better error for this case.

  - The error above usually happens when your firewall or "antivirus"
    software is blocking connections to (that is, it's
    blocking connections from your computer to your computer).  This is
    pretty broken.  First, check if your firewall software is up to date.
    (This is windows, so you might need to randomly reboot.)  Second,
    check whether you can tell it to allow Tor to connect to localhost.
