#17636 new defect

Can a single IPv6 bridge failure stop Tor connecting?

Description

ln5's IPv6-only Linux system had 3 bridges, but 2 failed.
Then the tor instance stopped connecting, even though it still had one good bridge.

Does this happen on IPv4?
(Can we reproduce it on IPv6?)
How can we make this more robust?

Throw most 0.2.8 "NEW" tickets into 0.2.9. I expect that many of them will subsequently get triaged out.

Finally admitting that 0.3.??? was a euphemism for Tor: unspecified all along.
