There are newer-but-still-stable-and-recommended versions of Tor, most
certainly - but they may not be packaged and available easily from
your distro.  (I'm also not certain if a release containing the fix
you need is considered 'stable'.)  What Operating System/Distribution
are you running on? (Or are you checking out specific tags in git?)
