I use the TorExample.py with slight modification to suit my purpose to
access the tor control service. However I see it hang often and there is
no response from the tor control service. I am not sure what could
possibly be the problem . Its quite non-deterministic . There is no
fixed pattern or occurrences which cause the server to stop responding.
However the situation corresponds to no data being transferred through a
TCP stream using the Tor circuit to which it is assigned. A 'wget'
session which uses Tor to perform the download shows no throughput in
the throughput indicator.
