Very thanks for those information. But what about "signature"? What
means that parameter and how does it computes?
As I suppose it is a hash of some data which browser send to server, and
it must be the same on each TBB in the World, am I right?
In the American version of the TBB it the same as in Russian but your
test indicate that in Russian version is wrong and that in in American
version is rights.
If I am right and that hash must be the same on each TBB, could you
right its right value? (I don't want to write my value here by the
security purposes).

P.S. But as I can see from http://ip-check.info and from
http://http://torcheck.xenobite.eu/ it detects from my Russian version
TBB the next:
LANGUAGE: en-us,en;q=0.5
ENCODING: gzip, deflate
CHARSET: windows-1251,utf-8;q=0.7,*;q=0.7
and from American version:
LANGUAGE: en-us,en;q=0.5
ENCODING: gzip, deflate
CHARSET: ISO-8859-1,utf-8;q=0.7,*;q=0.7
It seems as a bug in the TBB becuase in spite of indicating of "en-us"
language it indicates Russian charset in Russian version of TBB.
Probably, I take place in other non-American-Engilsih versions of TBB.
