[tor-relays] Accounting limits seem to cause permanent hibernation

I don't think that's the issue. If the limit had been reached, there would be traffic every day. Here are the traffic statistics from the last 30 days. You can clearly see, when I restarted the tor service.

Once I restart the service traffic is sent and received as expected, however after 1-2 days it seems to go into permanent hibernation again until I restart the service. The longest hibernation period was for about three month(!).
