 Replying to [comment:50 gk]:
 > 5) If I just used moat once I have afterwards a firefox process running
 at 150% CPU-wise regardless whether I am using bridges let alone
 requesting new ones. It's just "doing" things and is not going away or
 down to reasonable values.

 Steps to reproduce:

 1) Take https://people.torproject.org/~gk/testbuilds/tor-browser-linux64
 -tbb-nightly_23136_2_en-US.tar.xz (sig:
 2) Replace the tor launcher with the one containing the moat code
 currently under review
 3) Start the bundle and connect directly
 4) Open the Tor Network Settings... behind the onion menu
 5) Request bridges
 6) Solve the CAPTCHA correctly
 7) Click the OK button
 8) Watch the firefox process taking 150% of your CPU (It's actually only
 this one firefox process visible with `ps` and no meek processes anymore)
