Description

Running TorBrowser on macOS with meek PT fails after long uptime.

Scenarios:

1) Run machine for a day or more, then try to open torbrowser and connect, and it fails.

2) Boot machine, use torbrowser successfully for a period, quit and then leave machine running for an extended period (a day at least) and then try to reopen torbrowser and connect -> fails to connect.

Interestingly, and for unknown reasons, adding the log options to meek-client and meek-client-torbrowser in torrc avoids this bug. Any thoughts?

Does it also fail after a long uptime when using other pluggable transports or with vanilla tor?

It sounds like this was another manifestation of #26360/#28179.
