#3742: auto ports are always chosen as port 94

     Type:  defect      |         Status:  new               
 Priority:  normal      |      Milestone:  Tor: 0.2.3.x-final
Component:  Tor Client  |        Version:

 With the proposal 171 implementation, we also added a bug inside
 retry_listener_ports(): When we call tor_addr_to_sockaddr(), the second
 argument is a uint16_t, but we stick an int into it. When this int has the
 value of CFG_AUTO_PORT, it gets truncated to 94 - and port 94 can
 typically not be opened without root.
