Tor detects imaginary IP change
Weird! Details : had Tor set to "guess" our WAN IP. Minutes before starting the Tor (server), I voluntarily changed my ISP assigned IP. Launched Tor : it detected the correct IP (line 1). But 1 minute later, Tor senses an imaginary change of IP address (line 6) that was to the FORMER IP address, i.e. one that was in effect BEFORE the server was launched. I can only suppose Tor found the IP number from some stale file or cache !
First time ever seen that, but usually I didn't let Tor "guess" the WAN IP, rather giving it a (dynamic DNS) host name.
Oh and 10 minutes later, Tor redected our IP, this time correctly (not shown in below log).
