Leave it to me to find the impossible condition. ;)  My dirport is
enabled in my torrc, however because I used AccountingMax, Tor
automatically disables the dirport on start.  I can be a HSDir because DirPort
is configured in torrc.  

I suspect this is really a bug where we should disable
HSDir if DirPort isn't active, regardless of configuration status.

I mainly configured it as such because it's fun to find out the emergent
properties of a system.
