Yeah. Here's the better approach, which I think matches what you say

Step 0: set "DownloadExtraInfo 1" in your torrc.

Step 1: GETINFO desc/all-recent

Step 2: Look for descriptors that have the extra-info-digest line, and
then GETINFO extra-info/<DIGEST> to get the bandwidth information for
that descriptor.

Hope that helps. I just tested the GETINFO desc/all-recent-extrainfo-hack
thing, and it seems to work. Perhaps you skipped step 0?
