What the difference between the bandwidth
value given by

   getinfo ns/name/xxxxx

   >>> w Bandwidth=269


   getinfo dir/server/authority

   >>> bandwidth 250000 375000 286720

Here they are close, but sometime they
are far apart.  The first above is what
shows up in the Vidalia Network Map
and the latter is less visible, but
shows up in various web tools for
monitoring the Tor Network.

In particular, how are these values used
in choosing route paths?
