Comment (by micah):

 Another reason why this would be important... A few days ago longclaw had
 a set of relays added to its config to reject. The configs were made
 correctly, and the daemon was hupped through the standard process.

 Today, while looking at longclaw's votes, I noticed that the AuthDirReject
 lines that were in the config were not working, the relays were still
 being voted on! I don't know why, but silent fail of the dirauth loading
 rules is not a good thing.

 I stopped the tor process completely, and then started it again, and then
 in the next vote, the relays were no longer there.

 It would have been *really* good to know that these were not there, when I
 thought that they were. I just happened to notice that they were not there
 by manually parsing the votes
