Tor observations

Well, in my local tor log, I see this quite frequently:

	Nov 14 16:13:58.001 [warn] directory_initiate_command(): No running 
dirservers known. This is really bad.

I can only assume that is really bad.  What do I do about it?

On the other hand, I have to say Tor is really working out.  I run it 
on a Powebook (Mac OS X) which is constantly being put to sleep, and 
forced to wake up on completely different networks.  Tor and Privoxy 
are doing a stellar job of keeping up.  I've got over a week of uptime 
with no problems at all.  The usability of Tor seems really good.  I 
don't even notice the added latency most of the time.
