 Update to, from maintainer Christian Sturm in PR 43302:
 Changes in version - 2010-05-02
   Tor addresses the recent connection and memory overload
   problems we've been seeing on relays, especially relays with their
   DirPort open. If your relay has been crashing, or you turned it off
   because it used too many resources, give this release a try.
   This release also fixes yet another instance of broken OpenSSL libraries
   that was causing some relays to drop out of the consensus.
   o Major bugfixes:
     - Teach relays to defend themselves from connection overload. Relays
       now close idle circuits early if it looks like they were intended
       for directory fetches. Relays are also more aggressive about closing
       TLS connections that have no circuits on them. Such circuits are
       unlikely to be re-used, and tens of thousands of them were piling
       up at the fast relays, causing the relays to run out of sockets
       and memory. Bugfix on (where clients started tunneling
       their directory fetches over TLS).
     - Fix SSL renegotiation behavior on OpenSSL versions like on Centos
       that claim to be earlier than 0.9.8m, but which have in reality
       backported huge swaths of 0.9.8m or 0.9.8n renegotiation
       behavior. Possible fix for some cases of bug 1346.
     - Directory mirrors were fetching relay descriptors only from v2
       directory authorities, rather than v3 authorities like they should.
       Only 2 v2 authorities remain (compared to 7 v3 authorities), leading
       to a serious bottleneck. Bugfix on Fixes bug 1324.
   o Minor bugfixes:
     - Finally get rid of the deprecated and now harmful notion of "clique
       mode", where directory authorities maintain TLS connections to
       every other relay.
   o Testsuite fixes:
     - In the util/threads test, no longer free the test_mutex before all
       worker threads have finished. Bugfix on
     - The master thread could starve the worker threads quite badly on
       certain systems, causing them to run only partially in the allowed
       window. This resulted in test failures. Now the master thread sleeps
       occasionally for a few microseconds while the two worker-threads
       compete for the mutex. Bugfix on
