Hi Niels, thanks for the bug report. I've fixed this one and others.
Let me know how it goes.

I've also added some debugging code to hunt down a connection-mangling
bug that's been lingering (but is unfortunately very rare still).


  o Fix mangled-state bug in directory fetching (was causing sigpipes).
  o Only build circuits after we've fetched the directory: clients were
    using only the directory servers before they'd fetched a directory.
    (This also means longer startup time; so it goes.)
  o Fix an assert trigger where an OP would fail to handshake, and we'd
    expect it to have a nickname.
  o Work around a tsocks bug: do a socks reject when AP connection dies
    early, else tsocks goes into an infinite loop.
