[tor-talk] endless list of scrubbed circuits

Using vidalia bundle 0.2.10 / 0.2.30 w/ Torbutton 1.3.2a in Vista x64,
Loading the simplest web page (no busy sites, no d/l sites, etc.) is
incredibly slow, & usually times out. Much slower than I've ever seen
it unless there was something wrong w/ internet conn in general. Seems
like it started when upgraded (actually did clean install) of latest
Vidalia bundle. Not a one time thing - have tried it on diff days at
diff times - always slow.
Software seems to be loading OK - Tor, vidalia, polipo are all running.
Tor chk sites confirm using Tor exit node.
There's an endless, constantly increasing list of scrubbed circuits -
like below. It just keeps going thru them like a ticker tape.
"Apr 08 14:36:37.277 [Notice] We tried for 15 seconds to connect to
'[scrubbed]' using exit 'politkovskaja'. Retrying on a new circuit."
NOTE: I CAN connect to some sites using Tor - so it IS working, it's
just so slow, apparently because of all the scrubbed circuits, it's of
no use for anything.
Any ideas what's causing this behavior? I did uninstall / reinstall tor
bundle. Have closed Tor & browser, then restarted - no joy.
