Comment (by arma):

 Replying to [ticket:18620 str4d]:
 > This can be used to flush state that's likely to be stale before trying
 to connect to a hidden service via an unstable network connection (such as
 a mobile data connection).

 Can we get a more concrete case here, for exactly what behavior goes
 wrong? "What you do, what you expect, what happens instead."

 Then we can try to reconstruct what was happening on each Tor side, and
 think about if there's something smarter Tor could do instead.
