#1013 closed defect (Fixed)

DirPortFrontPage gets rate limited and goes silent

Description should say 'test', but instead it fails quietly
because the relay has hit its rate limits recently and doesn't want to waste any
bytes on frivolous directory stuff.

I think this is a bug, since people intentionally set DirPortFrontPage, so they
really do want their relay to serve that page when it's asked for. Having it
appear only sometimes (or roughly never in Sebastian's case) makes it way less
