This release improves reliability for clients. It's not perfect yet,
but I think it's better. Let me know if it breaks something.

o Bugfixes on 0.0.9pre:
- Clean up some more integer underflow opportunities (not exploitable
- While hibernating, hup should not regrow our listeners.
- Send an end to the streams we close when we hibernate, rather
than just chopping them off.
- React to eof immediately on non-open edge connections.
o Bugfixes on 0.0.8.1:
- Calculate timeout for waiting for a connected cell from the time
we sent the begin cell, not from the time the stream started. If
it took a long time to establish the circuit, we would time out
right after sending the begin cell.
- Fix router_compare_addr_to_addr_policy: it was not treating a port
of * as always matching, so we were picking reject *:* nodes as
exit nodes too. Oops.
- New circuit building strategy: keep a list of ports that we've
used in the past 6 hours, and always try to have 2 circuits open
or on the way that will handle each such port. Seed us with port
80 so web users won't complain that Tor is "slow to start up".
- Make kill -USR1 dump more useful stats about circuits.
- When warning about retrying or giving up, print the address, so
the user knows which one it's talking about.
- If you haven't used a clean circuit in an hour, throw it away,
just to be on the safe side. (This means after 6 hours a totally
unused Tor client will have no circuits open.)
