 I'm using Tor to access my servers over ssh and hidden services.

 So, now, I made a change in /etc/torrc (it seems i made a mistake or
 something), reloaded tor, then completely lost any connectivity.

 It would be nice if tor didn't exit when "just" reloading.

 Tor should just say (in the logs) "something went wrong, check the
 config", but tor should *not* exit.

 Sorry, i'm somehow mad. I know the fault is on me, I should have
 double(triple) checked the changes I made. But you're the devs, i'm the
 user. So here i am yelling at you ;-)
