TBB Linux 4.0-Alpha-1 HashedControlPassword not working
On TBB 4.0-Alpha Linux 64-bit when trying to connect to the control port with the password of "secret" I get the following error: "515 Authentication failed: Password did not match HashedControlPassword or authentication cookie."
In start-tor-browser script file, line 225 "unset TOR_CONTROL_PASSWD" this leaves the control password blank. Every time I start TBB the HashedControlPassword is different.
When setting TOR_CONTROL_PASSWD in the terminal, TBB fails to start. Error message is: "[warn] Bad password or authentication cookie on controller."
When setting TOR_CONTROL_PASSWD in start-tor-browser script file the same error message is reported "[warn] Bad password or authentication cookie on controller."
When manually setting HashedControlPassword in torrc, tor ignored it and sometimes changed it.
All errors happened on a clean/brand new Linux Mint 64-bit Virtual Machine.
