Re: Problems with irc because of tor?

Now I'm really lost on this.  Tor quit running (I cannot run tor- 
for more than a couple minutes, so it seems.  It just suddenly quits without 
any errors.  It's running then suddenly it isn't.

Looks like it is back to the previous version again...

That said, tor is down/off and I STILL get the same messages for my IRC 
client.  It seems that simply running tor briefly is enough to bork my IRC 
client from then on (at least until I reboot)?
