I had to reboot my bridge for a (Ubuntu) kernel upgrade but now it cannot
confirm that the ORPort is accessible:

I have not changed my tor configuration (honest! :-)) and Tor
0.2.4.12-alpha (from deb.torproject.org) was running fine before. This
particular bridge is running inside an Amazon EC2 instance and I can reach
port 9001 from the outside:
$ nc -w1 -vnz xx.18.xx.xxx 9001
Connection to xx.18.xx.xxx 9001 port [tcp/*] succeeded!
And I can see that request on the bridge when tcpdump'ing :9001, so it's
not a network issue. I'm not sure what "/etc/hosts" should have to do with
it, but I haven't modified this either. I'm strace'ing the tor process now
to see what it's doing but couldn't find anything suspicious so far.
BOFH excuse #139:
UBNC (user brain not connected)
