Torbutton's reachability test

Whenever I do a reachability test with Torbutton, and it has to fail
because the proxy isn't running on the right port yet, I get an "internal
failure" as the reason. This means that on every future attempt to
toggle Tor state to on, I get a warning that the most recent proxy test
failed to detect a working Tor installation. Rerunning the proxy test
again gives me an internal error, even though Tor works otherwise.

I've tested this on OS X FF 3.5.2 and Debian Squeeze with some
Iceweaesel version (can look it up soon if that's important) with
polipo as the proxy.

Maybe the message should say that Torbutton failed
to connect to a working Tor instance and then ask
whether an http proxy, which would enable this, is running.

Note to self: Its possible 1105, 1085, 1065, 1063, and 899 are all the same bug.

Sebastian, I was able to reproduce the unfixable repeat proxy failure issue only if I was changing my
torbutton settings.

I have fixed the internal failure issue, and it seems to work if I have privoxy disabled, fail a test,
start privoxy, and try another test.

I've attached the xpi that should fix this in the attachments tab. Let me know if it fixes the issue
you experienced, and/or if that issue was related to actually changing proxy settings, or just killing
the privoxy process.

I'm unable to reproduce the problem with the attached file.

The only setting I remember changing was to set Tor to be on by default.

This is fixed for 1.2.3. Created a new bug 1159 for the proxy change issue I noticed.
