Annoying polipo problem on linux

I'm trying to switch from privoxy to polipo. But polipo seems to have an annoying problem. Polipo gets started as a service while booting, the same as I did with privoxy. But tor gets just started with activating Vidalia. 
The problem is if tor is not running when polipo gets started it doesn't use it! I mean if I start Vidalia+Tor and Polipo has been started before Polipo doesn't use Tor. But I can't start tor before polipo because I wanna use it with Vidalia. So I have every boot to manually start polipo with sudo /etc/init.d/polipo start. Has anyone a workaround for this?
