I don't know if that's recommendable, but I changed the torrc,
vidalia.conf and Aurora (in the TorButton ext.) for testing purpose.
That works under windows at least.

ControlPort 9052 // One higher that usual
SocksPort 9060 // 9050 is the default, any unused should do

ControlPort 9052 // has to match the one in torrc

Torbutton settings
change the proxy port to the Socks Port in torrc, otherwise the other
Tor instance might be used, in the case it allows local access.

Any concerns or additions?
