Thank you so much! that really was it! but you will never believe
which application caused this! it was the opera browser! without your
help i would have never figured this out.
i still dont understand why opera would suddenly start to hammer tor
like this. i know that opera has a built-in bittorrent client, but
that has never caused any problems until recently.
