 After the upgrade to v my onion wasn't available anymore.

 This is the info I get when attempting to start tor:

 Jan 23 00:29:34.000 [warn] Error decoding PEM wrapper while reading
 private key
 Jan 23 00:29:34.000 [warn] Unable to decode private key from file
 Jan 23 00:29:34.000 [err] Error loading private key.
 Jan 23 00:29:34.000 [warn] Error loading rendezvous service keys
 Jan 23 00:29:34.000 [err] set_options(): Bug: Acting on config options
 left us in a broken state. Dying. (on Tor )
 Jan 23 00:29:34.000 [err] Reading config failed--see warnings above.

 More users are having the same issue, that their Scallion generated keys
 cannot be read by the most recent version of TOR.

 Any ideas?
