Update DirCache Warning

Description

When DirCache is disabled tor 0.3.1.x says:

[warn] DirCache is disabled and we are configured as a relay. This may disqualify us from becoming a guard in the future.

Since TorBrowser ships tor 0.3.1.x we can consider this as granted (not in the future), right?

"tor" in Tor Browser aren't relays so this warning can't be showed with Tor Browser.

Only relays can get this warning if the available memory is >= 300MB and DirCache 0.

Hi David,

I think there is a misunderstanding. This ticket is not about showing a warning to Tor Browser users.

This ticket is about the fact that tor (relay) says:

This may disqualify us from becoming a guard in the future.

, but it should say:

This disqualifies us from becoming a guard.

or am I wrong about this?
