ACL [1] is part of Debian. I presume that it's this way many years now
... I've updated the pastebin [2] with getfacl outputs. still
I don't have any of that other stuff installed.
(Both packages for and contain an apparmor profile.
Only change and new line is
  /usr/bin/obfs4proxy PUx,
in /etc/apparmor.d/abstracions/tor)

My system logs don't contain anything I haven't released (I checked
dmesg, /var/log/messages, syslog, kern.log).
