 > I just updated my Tor with tor-, but when I run tor, it
 uses 100% of one of my CPU's cores, even if I run something simple like
 tor --version. What is going on?

 > I use Slackware and used the Tor SlackBuild to build it.

 > Try to remove --enable-openbsd-malloc option

 > Why would that fix it?

 > Because I had a similar problem, and I solved, after some tests, just
 like that.
