You don't really want to disable all circuit construction -- this would
break hidden services publishing, and it would break reachability testing
for servers.

I just added a new config option __DisablePredictedCircuits that should
do what you want: http://archives.seul.org/or/cvs/Apr-2007/msg00135.html

It simply doesn't build the preemptive "extra" circuits, so you don't
have random circuits appearing. Is this what you had in mind?
