An olg bug in new tor-package

I get the same message with that version (Torv0.2.1.25),on Mac OS 10.5.2 ppc
What I've written below is also new to my Tor experience:

Vidalia connects very quickly for me,which is strange since the country in which I live, the internet is slow,spotty and connections can be short, even when not using Tor. In fact,Vidalia's message log never completes telling me what's happening when it isinitially building a circuit for connection to the Tor network. 
It's just, suddenly I'm connected.
However, when I went to - - ,it tells me I am notusing a Tor node and am not using Tor to connect to the internet!  How come?
I used to regularly do several IP checksafter I had enabled Torbutton and connected with Vidalia,  but after the IP returns were the same IP's,  andfrom different days and sessions, Andrew told me that habits tend to stick outto any kind of adversary, so I stopped.
But, how can I now trust that I am indeedsafe, in the Tor network after Vidalia says I am and Tor check says I'm  not?

My OS - Debian Lenny AMD64, Tor v0.2.1.25, openssl  0.9.8g-15+lenny6
I have the next record in the log of Tor:
 OpenSSL OpenSSL 0.9.8g 19 Oct 2007 [90807f] looks like it's older than
0.9.8l, but some vendor
s have backported 0.9.8l's renegotiation code to earlier versions.  I'll
set SSL3_FLAGS just to be safe.
