Something to keep in mind is Facebook intentionally makes their onion
service faster than normal. They are not concerned with location-privacy
so they disable most protections. If you need a stable and fast onion
service for testing, Facebook's may be the best choice (for the near
future, at least).

I'm curious, do you know what is failing? Are the connection requests
timing out? If you attach a controller to the tor client and watch for
circuit events, do you see the connection failing at the same point

(I haven't run any tests, if I have some time I will)
