Comment (by sisbell):

 I've seen this message before when running the Java Tor client. It occurs
 (100% reproducible) when there is an existing tor control connection
 already running. I didn't think this condition would occur on Android.

 First, I'll verify we aren't somehow starting Tor twice.

 Second, I'll look into if old processes aren't getting cleaned up. In this
 case, we can takeownership and it should clean up automatically when the
 Android app closes. I have an open issue for this:
