     With the caveat in mind that I inserted the extra line manually into, rather than into the version that had been crashing, I think
it's probably safe to close this PR now. has been up over a
day already, and I've sent it a SIGHUP on three occasions so far, including
one a few minutes ago just as another test.  Each time it appears to have
responded appropriately.
     Thanks very much, Nick, for fixing the problem so quickly.  I am a bit
curious to know how the line in question came to be missing, but it's not
terribly important at this point.  I'm very glad to have normal functionality
returned to tor.
