 Replying to [comment:8 teor]:
 > * the original calculation was missing the port, which can be up to 6
 characters extra: ":65535". Let's fix this existing bug while we're at it.

 to avoid ambiguity with an added ":port".
 The actual request in {{{directory_send_command}}} won't include the
 square brackets because {{{tor_dup_addr}}} doesn't take a decorate
 parameter to pass to {{{tor_addr_to_str}}}. This is probably a bug.

 I've pushed a commit fixing both of these.
