 It appears that between bootstrap 85% and 90%, it is when the consensus is
 fetch and we wait on it before trying to establish a first circuit which
 would bring us to 90%.

 Before that, we have no live consensus so setting the hsdir index to a
 `node_t` fails because it requires a live consensus to do so. Because of
 that, a client just can't reach any service because it can not build an

 I think we should require any client actions to have a live consensus
 which would mean to either stall the SOCKS request until we have it (seems
 to be around 90% bootstrap) or we close it right away and ask to come back

 I would go for stalling and try once the live consensus is here.
