Tor doesn't work in kqueue(2) mode on FreeBSD 5.4

When running Tor on FreeBSD 5.4-STABLE with libevent-1.1a in kqueue(2) mode (the default), conn_read_callback() is never called, which results in Tor being unable to receive a directory, build a circuit, or do anything for that matter.

Disabling the kqueue mode by setting the EVENT_NOKQUEUE environment variable works around the problem.

Hm. Tor seemed to work okay on FreeBSD 5.3-RELEASE-p10. This is probably some 5.4 bug, perhaps.

Do the unittests for libevent run okay?

Good news. My -STABLE was from June 9; I just upgraded to the latest -STABLE and
the problem is now gone.

You may now close this bug report.
