that's clear; i'm using TOR as a mix with a transparent local http proxy which uses an ISP
proxy as parent proxy, so that the exit traffic goes through two proxies and with several numbers
in the X_FORWARDED_FOR header ;-)
That's good enough for hiding my public IP to http servers which do log only the TCP/IP number and
for most which do evaluate the X_FORWARDED_FOR header. 
And because of the mixing the ISP can't see which traffic is caused by me. So he can see a TOR server
which uses one of his proxies but not my personal traffic. For obfuscation i opened all exit ports except
25 (because of spam).

Ok, i will use
but what exactly shall i write into that file?
killall -s SIGHUP tor?
