[tor-talk] Interrupt: we have stopped accepting new connections


I'm running a Tor relay on Ubuntu 15.10 and today I upgraded from 
to ( Since then the Tor node starts, builds up 
~280 connections - and then accepts no new connections. "telnet localhost 
9001" comes back with connection refused. And in the log this infamous[0] 
message gets logged every ~2.5 minutes:

  > Interrupt: we have stopped accepting new connections, and will shut
  > down in 30 seconds. Interrupt again to exit now.

I'm not using "monit" or other monitoring tools that would stop Tor - it 
appears to stop itself. The changelog[1] for the new version mentions:

 * Split systemd service timeout into start and stop timeout, and raise
   them to 120 and 60 seconds from 45 (closes: tor#16398).

Could this be related to what I'm seeing? I can't debug any further now 
but hopefully tomorrow. I wasn't able to find a 
tor_0.2.7.3-rc-1_amd64.deb, all the mirrors already have caught up with 
the new version.

My torrc (which hasn't changed for months):

Any ideas?
