 > (For what it's worth, I just tried creating a root-owned unreadable
 torrc and running against it, but it didn't get a crash like this, so
 there's probably something else going on here too.)

 Steps to reproduce, as I understood from the bug reporter, would be to
 start Tor with an init script that runs as root (e.g. on debian), and so
 can read the torrc file, and then hup tor after it's dropped privileges.
