you for this info. This seems to work fine (TOR_SKIP_LAUNCH).

Since I use it I also get a proper error message that tells me that
Torbutton cannot safely give me a new identity. It does not have
access to the Tor Control Port.

Is is it considered a bug to *not* display this warning when *not*
using TOR_SKIP_LAUNCH=1 in transparent torification mode?

What is the current state on this?
