     Actually, before posting my original note, I had used tor-resolve to
look for an IP address, and it quickly returned  Doing a
reverse lookup of that address (also with tor-resolve -x) returned not the
original name but rather qw-in-f121.1e100.net.  Plugging either the IP
address or the latter name into the URL got me the same Google error page.
     Now, however, tor-resolve on the original name returns
[warn] Got SOCKS5 status response '4': host is unreachable
but the reverse lookup still gives the name shown above.
