Tor Browser Bundle 5.0.2 -- Tor Button On Linux systems:

I use a Tor relay on my local network, to which I connect to through a stunnel (spawned by xinetd on the client side, and spawned by systemd on the server side - where the relay is). I have set a password in the start-tor-browser script, and modified the values as instructed in that script. When I then start Tor, I'm greeted by the "Something Went Wrong!
Tor is not working in this browser." screen, and the Tor button is grayed out. Yet, I can surf to onion sites, and the Tor button shows the Tor circuit for the site I'm on. I assume that at least anonymous surfing is working well, but it's confusing and induces quite a bit of insecurity when the browser reports that it's all disabled.
