in 3.6.3 TBB linux amd-64 i changed the port to 9050

my local install of Tor is on the jessie alpha channel

when i close & restart TBB i get:

Something Went Wrong!
Tor is not working in this browser.

this is repeatable behaviour opening/closing TBB

some Tor log looks ok though and apart from logs it obviously does work
on 9050

[NOTICE] Bootstrapped 85%: Finishing handshake with first hop.
[NOTICE] Bootstrapped 90%: Establishing a Tor circuit.
[NOTICE] Tor has successfully opened a circuit. Looks like client
functionality is working.
[NOTICE] Bootstrapped 100%: Done.
[NOTICE] New control connection opened.

as an aside would it be discouraged to use the alpha in TBB and not the
bundled Tor version (git-345e00dc68a052fe) ?

pros/cons either way ?
