Re: Excessive scrubs

Upgrade Vidalia to 0.2.10 and the problem will go away.

The first of the scrubs have now showed for the past 4 hrs. Once an
hour. It is now showing the address and it is the same address. It is
a ' geoips vidalia ' address ( am not showing complete addy ).
Apparently for some reason it is not resolving or connecting to
address. I did attempt to try directly, with a couple of different
ways and was not able to access the site.

If you want the complete address, I will put in later.

Will see if it is the only one that shows up over the next 12 hrs.

I had added the ' SafeLogging 0 ' to the file as per Tor-ops

Was Vidalia running when you edited the torrc? Vidalia (on Windows, at
least) has a bad habit of overwriting changes to the torrc that it isn't
aware of. Personally I think there should be a "Confirm before modifying
torrc" checkbox in Vidalia.

I just checked it now, It is still in the file, but the logs still
show the ' scubbed' and not the address as supposedly the '
SafeLogging 0 ' was to replace. Time wise it appears to be at a
minimum of once an hour. Which makes me believe it is the same address
that is being scrubbed.

Try shutting down both Tor and Vidalia, making your edits, restarting both,
and rechecking your torrc/logs. If you've done all this, please let us know.
