Thanks Erinn ... tried that and it didn't work. Doesn't remember
settings even in the current session, let alone across restarts. I've
poked around a little more now and found a way to make it work:

- edit Data/Vidalia/vidalia.conf and set:


- edit Data/Tor/torrc and set:

    SocksPort 9050

That sets the control port to 9051 and SOCKS to 9050.
