'GETINFO config-text' always includes HiddenServiceStatistics
Similar to legacy/trac#2362 (moved), our new HiddenServiceStatistics option always appears in our 'GETINFO config-text' output even if unset...
% cat /tmp/simple_torrc ControlPort 9051 % tor-prompt >>> GETINFO config-text 250+config-text= ControlPort 9051 DataDirectory /home/atagar/.tor HiddenServiceStatistics 0 Log notice stdout . 250 OK
As such saving your torrc in applications like vidalia, arm, and maybe tor browser (does it have the ability to save your torrc?) append this needless option.
