I've got the same with stable released version:

`[warn] circuit_package_relay_cell(): Bug: outgoing relay cell sent from ../src/or/relay.c:701 has
n_chan==NULL. Dropping. (on Tor 0.2.8.6 )`

In total I got three messages, all of them were written in logfile in the same time moment. Is that dangerous?

comment:3 Changed 18 months ago by bugzilla

What is the severity of this bug, should we worry?
(It's 0.2.9.x-final time-frame/milestone now, or not?)

comment:4 Changed 18 months ago by nickm

This is probably not dangerous.

Getting this as well on Tor 0.2.9.3-alpha-dev (git-153ff4f559d9b7ee+73b976d)- the Tor process in question is not a relay, only hosts a hidden service (if this info helps).

Got it today on Tor 0.3.0.0-alpha-dev acting as just a client:

Nov 15 03:12:24.143 [warn] circuit_package_relay_cell(): Bug: outgoing relay cell sent from src/or/relay.c:737 has n_chan==NULL. Dropping. (on Tor 0.3.0.0-alpha-dev 307d244640ff9ad8)

Confirm getting this on 0.3.0.0-alpha-dev (git-cac495f0ffdb9d62+e6e941b) acting as a hidden service server.

Hit it today as well:

[warn] circuit_package_relay_cell(): Bug: outgoing relay cell sent from ../src/or/relay.c:737 has n_chan==NULL. Dropping. (on Tor 0.3.0.2-alpha-dev )

#8185 looks duplicate and is 4 years old. I won't close it for now as there was some work done there.

Deferring all 0.3.1 tickets with status == new, owner == nobody, sponsor == nobody, points > 0.5, and priority < high.

I'd still take patches for most of these -- there's just nobody currently lined up to work on them in this timeframe.

I observed the bug in 0.3.0.8:

circuit_package_relay_cell(): Bug: outgoing relay cell sent from ../src/or/relay.c:737 has n_chan==NULL. Dropping. (on Tor 0.3.0.8 802d30d9b71a6d54)

I am using Windows 8 if that makes any difference.

[Edit: to clarify, this is on a client.]
