     The above method is not guaranteed to give the correct result either.
It will only do so if one's tor client is routing all current connection
requests throught the same circuit.  Because a client may have several active,
non-expired circuits to choose from at any moment, the connection to the
external service may not go through the same exit, much less the same circuit,
as the connection for which LinDu is interested in knowing the exit IP
