Thanks, but - Whoa!  Tor 0.2.4.x isn't declared stable, so skip it - go 
straight to 3.0a?  I know it's got a lot of ? unproven as rock solid? 
features, but what about my secret "double naught" spying duties?
But, no XP here.

Anyway, what about others reaching Startpage & Ixquick using 2.3.25-12?  
If they're largely unreachable for others, no point in worrying about 
that - plenty of other stuff to occupy myself.
