It could be. I have a Polipo-Tor chain running on my machine, and
running Aurora works for me. Looking at the configuration of Aurora
on my machine shows that it's configured to use a SOCKS5 proxy server
running on 127.0.0.1 and listening on 9050/TCP, which is my copy of
Tor running as a daemon.
Running tcpdump on my system (tcpdump -i lo -s 0 -v -X -n port 9050)
and starting Aurora shows that it does indeed connect to
localhost:9050 on startup when it tries to access
check.torproject.org, so it's ignoring my copy of Polipo. That said,
I don't think the problem you're seeing has to do with Polipo running
or not running.
Check Vidalia - is Tor running? Moreover, look at the list of
processes running on your system and make sure that Tor's running.
