Client with low CBT can't establish any circuits
I ran my Tor client on my laptop for a while in a stable place. It ended up thinking my connection is super-fast:
Jun 21 01:49:15.786 [info] circuit_build_times_parse_state(): Loaded 1000/1000 values from 136 lines in circuit time histogram Jun 21 01:49:15.786 [info] circuit_build_times_get_xm(): Xm mode #0: 575 55 Jun 21 01:49:15.786 [info] circuit_build_times_get_xm(): Xm mode #1: 625 51 Jun 21 01:49:15.786 [info] circuit_build_times_get_xm(): Xm mode #2: 575 55 Jun 21 01:49:15.786 [notice] Based on 1000 circuit times, it looks like we don't need to wait so long for circuits to finish. We will now assume a circuit is too slow to use after waiting 2 seconds.

But then I restarted my Tor, this time with a bridge that is in .za:

And now my Tor client is dead in the water.
