Thanks for that. I hope he might. I would understand if there were a line  
in my torrc stating saying "CookieAuthentication 1". But I tried and I  
cannot find any text config file on my system that would specify that this  
is the default, co I deduce it must have been included in compile time,  
which - to me - is very confusing. But maybe that is the debian way.
Anyway, thanks a lot!
