Well, it's an assertion failure. That's always a bug. It means that
some part of the Tor code noticed that one of its assumptions was
violated, and rather than continuing on (and probably crashing,
possibly in bad and exploitable ways), it exited immediately with the
The message in question looks like it might happen if a controller
quickly set and then cleared the EntryNode option before Tor started
picking a path for its next circuit. I've checked in a patch that
should fix this in the next development version (0.1.2.9-beta or -rc),
and that will appear in 0.1.1.27 too if there's ever one of those. ;)
Thanks again for the bug report!
