I was able to identify two tor processes running and killed them both.
 I then used your recommended way of starting tor.  Now the log filed
is being filled with good stuff and ARM is behaving as I am used to.
FWIW, I googled around quite a bit and never noticed specific
instructions on stopping tor.  So thanks for giving me the magic bullet.

Yes, these are the directions I followed.  In fact I installed Debian
just so I could use option 1 as it seemed preferable.  I was
reasonably careful with this; how wrong can you go with sudo apt-get
install?  However, I have learned from hard experience to never be too
cocky about having everything done right. :-)
