As it turns, it has nothing to do with Tor. I tested vanilla tor- 
and started it manually and Tor works just fine.

This message ("Interrupt: we have stopped accepting new connections") gets 
triggerd when Tor receives a -SIGINT signal to shutdown gracefully.

So something on the system is sending -SIGINT to Tor every ~2.5 minutes. 
This being an Ubuntu/wily system, the first suspect would be systemd. I 
have two systemd "things" here, maybe its configuration must be tuned not 
to send out -SIGINT signals:

  $ systemctl | grep -w tor
  tor@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx loaded failed failed    Anonymizing overlay network for TCP
  system-tor.slice    loaded active active    system-tor.slice

I'll try to find some time to debug through this mess in the next days, 
but for now I'll just run Tor manually.
