Same goes, of course, for any other currently allowed but nonsensical combination of config options.

While I do plan to put the proper checks in to not allow this to happen, me things we also need better handling of tor console error messages so we don't just loop and loop and loop on the failed startup.

When trying to run Orbot via the Shell it reports that it's missing a Bridge address, but not when using the Orbot GUI.

Field validation is now done from the settings screen, and forces you to go back and fix it.
