s/domain/IP-address ?

However, that's all up to the implementation of the internal SOCKS-proxy, too!
Just think: Your browser might send out 6 different requests in
different connections, but you don't know what the SOCKS-interface of
Tor makes of it... It might try to be clever and queue it up to a
single circuit.

Not that this is bad, but interesting to know.

If we get an answer, we should put that up to the Tor Tech FAQ. It's a
pretty interesting question.
