I have discovered the following error message in my log files:

Has anyone else seen this and if so what information can I provide to help track down this bug?

I believe this was fixed in, which was released on 2006-07-05.

What Tor version are you running? If it's a later version than that,
can you provide more details, like how often it occurs, whether you can
induce it to occur, whether there's high load at the time, whether your
CPU sucks, whether you're running an obscure operating system, and other
hints that might be helpful?



I have installed on CentOS 4.2 with full updates. The CPU on the machine is on the lower end (1 GHz). As previously noted on this list, I was having trouble getting my ORPort to be recognized as reachable until I compiled Tor with --disable-threads. The threads problem disappeared with an upgrade to the CentOS kernel RPM, kernel-2.6.9-42.0.3.EL.

The error appears over the last couple of days in the log at 1000 and 2200 EST each day. I am not able to induce the error myself. What other information (i.e. debug logs, etc) can I provide to help debug this issue?
