Whenever I see strange issues like this, my first thought is whether
the relay advertises an IPv6 address, yet it's unreachable there.
Tor is pretty good at self-testing its IPv4 addresses, but it just
trusts you that your IPv6 address works.
And then only some of the directory authorities have IPv6 support,
but these days it's a majority of them, so you won't get the Running
flag (i.e. won't be in the consensus) if your advertised IPv6 address
Hope that does it!
