[tor-dev] Using Stem to monitor TBB usage.

I am having trouble using Stem to connect to the tor controller, while at the same time browsing the web using the TBB.
The tor control settings can be edited in Vidalia -> settings -> advanced. There it is configured by default to use port 9150 and a random password for authentication, but I can not see what password. If I change any of these settings, then I cannot browse anymore, and TB displays "The proxy server is refusing connections".
I am using this snippet:
from stem.control import Controller
with Controller.from_port(port = 9151) as controller:
controller.authenticate('') # provide the password here if you set one
bytes_read = controller.get_info("traffic/read")
bytes_written = controller.get_info("traffic/written")
print "My Tor relay has read %s bytes and written %s." % (bytes_read, bytes_written)
So my problem is that I can not connect to the tor controller while at the same time browsing using the tbb. How do I fix this?
