when run as an uprivileged user (with that user a member of the
debian-tor group), arm reports

"[ARM_NOTICE] We were unable to use any of your system's resolvers to
get tor's connections. This is fine, but means that the connections
page will be empty. This is usually permissions related so if you would
like to fix this then run arm with the same user as tor (ie, "sudo -u
<tor user> arm"). "
