It is irritating but one has to tick:

this doesn't sound correct.   with a shared cookie or hashed passphrase,
does your vidalia not connect to the existing tor on start?

I can confirm that vidalia does not connect to tor (via controlport) if
"Start the Tor software when Vidalia starts"
is not activated and I do not click the "Start Tor" button manually.
Simply providing the password does not result in a connection to the controlport. (vidalia v0.2.9)

The option above should start a new tor process, spawned by vidalia.
